I heart Suzani


The term Suzani means "needlework"--specifically, the exquisite silk thread embroidery panels made by Uzbek women. Traditionally this embroidery work begins at the birth of a daughter and continued, with the help of family and friends, until the bride's dowry was complete. Below a few of my favorite Suzani pieces.

Gorgeous Suzani patterns at Donghia and the right pillow at Cornucopia Magazine.

Suzani Coin Purse and Tiles from Solar Antique tiles.
 
This Alexander Lampshade with grand embroidered palmettos and the also embroidered pillow at Anthropologie look very Suzani to me.

This Chippendale Style Wing Chair upholstered in a Travers Suzani style fabric is available at Coup D' Etat.

And this fantastic Madeline Weinrib Suzani pillow here.
