Turkmen Neckpiece and Ikat Cushion

The burnt sienna and strong black of the handwoven Uzbek ikat fabric on this cushion is enhanced by the magnificence of the Turkmen embroidery, here also with subtle green accents. This finely embroidered example of akkaima, one of the basic types of Turkmen embroidery, is used mainly at the neck of dresses and shirts and the lower edges of women's trousers. As well as on articles of clothing such as tyubeteykas (caps), the neck and sleeves of women's dresses and the lower part of trousers (seen from underneath the dress), Turkmen women also embroider different kinds of small bags used for keeping domestic items.

The backing of this cushion is Uzbek ikat, and the filler is included.
