Uzbekistan has an ancient textile tradition: rugs, embroidery and sewing. This patchwork quilt is made in using a traditional diamond pattern, with white and black contrasting with bright colors. In the 1980’s women began using synthetic fabrics which replaced the normally used cottons which would fade over time. Such is the case with this one. You will find all kinds of fabrics: cotton, polyester, velvet, acetate, etc. It is backed with a white cotton fabric.
Dimensions: 60.5" long x 51" wide
Metric: 154 × 130 cm
The main image is a bit lighter than the actual colors. The close-ups are more accurate. For example, the blue around the quilt is a medium blue, not baby blue. And, the red next to that is maroon.
This kind of textile would normally be used as a wall hanging, but would also look great on a bed or thrown over a couch.
Although you could probably wash and dry this with no problem, I would suggest dry cleaning it.
