SUZANI NEW, 130829
Suzani is a form of embroidered textile native to Central Asia. Our dreamy Suzani fabrics are all vintage treasures collected in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan and start with a bold textile, enlivened with intricate patterns and rich colours. The fabrics typically feature a cotton or silk base with lush embroidery of silk and wool.
The patterns reflect common motifs of flowers, animals, vines, and fruits that are local to the areas where they were originally crafted. Not surprisingly, Suzanis were traditionally part of a woman’s dowry to decorate her home.
