Afghan Kuchi Beaded Embroidery Panel

This colorful large beaded vintage panel was handcrafted in the later 1900's by Kuchi Tribal Jewelry artisans. Panels like these were pinned or sewn onto dresses, coats, and even headbands for adding colorful accents.

The bright yellow background is a favorite color among the tribes of Central Asia. Fringes of white beads were strategically placed to ward off the evil eye.  A dark-red cotton lining has been added, making it easy to affix the panel wherever desired and lending support.

The designs of stylized birds, rams horns, and the tree-of-life on this beaded panel are said to protect the wearer from harm and offer abundance. Each end has a round phul (flower) fringed with yellow beads with more colorfully beaded rams horns in the center.
