Here is an amazing piece of hand embroidery (crewel work) that I am reluctant to part with, but as I have no space for it on my wall it is time for it to go to a new home.

It is 152 cm long, by 88cm wide from the outside embroidered line, there is an extra 2cm of fabric out side of the body of the embroidery on all sides.

It is sewn in cotton thread on a cotton or linen fabric. It is beautiful colours, muted reds, greens, blues, and tan on a gold / tan background. I think it may have been made in India or Morocco, but I am not 100% sure.

It is in excellent condition, the edges are raw and haven't been hemmed, so you could sew something classy out of it, or use it as a wall hanging, as I did.

Hours of work must have gone into this art work, I think it is highly beautiful and would fit in any modern or chic home!

***** Thanks to the lovely trader who has informed me this is an "Afghan suzani" ******** Many lovely examples to see on google images.
