Ghuncha Gul Khiva Cushion

This dark blue cushion from the Khiva Silk Workshops has a design of Ghuncha Gul, or Blossom Flower, taken from that carved on a madrassah door in Khiva. Khiva is famous for the stunning beauty of its carpets and kilims – and today the Khiva Silk Workshops are earning a well deserved reputation for creating beautiful silk carpets and suzanis using natural dyes and reviving traditional designs. If you look carefully, you’ll find a solitary pomegranate hidden amongst the other floral icons. This is the signature of where this piece was made as well as a sign of imperfection because, according to the craftsmen of Khiva, no human hand can produce anything that is perfect.

For hundreds of years, Khiva stood for camel caravans laden with exotic silks and spices, bustling bazaars, glittering mosques and minarets and intrepid explorers of the nineteenth century. Today, Khiva's Old City is the most homogeneous example of Islamic architecture in the world and has been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO.

The cushion filler is included.
