Silk-screened synthetic fabric

48.5” long x 40” wide; 24.5” repeat

Unused condition – scattered small holes (1mm in size) and one small stain (see bottom photos). The holes are shown with black paper behind them.

 

Less expensive than woven silk ikat, faux-ikat fabric like this was popular for everyday girl’s and women’s dresses.

The young women in this photograph from an Uzbek fashion magazine (1975) are wearing printed-ikat dresses in the latest styles.

This cloth was most likely printed in one of the Soviet-built textile combines in either Uzbekistan or Tajikistan. The motifs represent amulets.
