Vintage Afghan Embroidered Pillow

These Afghan Pashtun vintage embroidery pieces are a reminder that Afghanistan has been at the heart of the of the Silk Road for centuries. Tiny embroidered silk stitching form the bold and colorful designs that are stitched on silk backgrounds. These were often used as mats to serve tea on. Pashtun nomad tribeswomen have embroidered these striking symmetrical designs in a very tight ladder-stitch for generations. As with many vintage textiles please expect some imperfections, though these are in excellent shape.
