A “zardevor” was a long narrow embroidery that hung just below the ceiling of an important room and served as a sort of frieze along one or more walls.

Often it was embroidered with words of good wishes. The Uzbek words on this piece loosely translate as “Friendship is eternal – Gulnora Karomat – 1981 – May the friendship of our hearts stay as pure as a spring.”
