Vintage Saye Gosha
Saye gosha are V-shaped hangings used to decorate piles of quilts while in storage during the day in the yurt. Saye goshas show the dynamic use of line and vivid color for which Uzbek Lakai embroidery is famous. The Lakai are an Uzbek tribe who currently live around Kunduz in northern Afghanistan. Originally more widespread, they were also once found in what is now Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
Purchased by our founder in Kabul, Afghanistan. This would make an interesting wall hanging, but also is a GREAT collar worn over a jacket or sweater.
This piece has outstanding embroidery and the fringe can be removed easily which would be appropriate.
