Good to fair condition – this fabric was used as the backing of an Uzbek quilt (“kurpa”) and as such there are scattered small holes in the body of the cloth where stitches were removed and along the selvedge; a few minor stains.
This lively pattern has a folkloric look. The shading in the flowers and leaves appears to simulate embroidery stitches.
