Suzani is a type of hand-embroidered and decorative tribal textile panel made in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and other Central Asian countries. Suzani textiles were traditionally made by brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. These large embroidered dowry textiles of Turkic groups (uzbek, tajik) are so named because of the many hundreds of hours of needlework required to produce them. Each region in Uzbekistan has their own design style and patterns - Samarkand, Bukhara, Tashkent, Ferghana and others. Suzani are great examples of the folk art of an ancient tribal culture.
Great for Boho-Chic, Bohemian decorating style and can also be mixed with contemporary, modern or ethnic decor. These colorful, antique and vintage decorative textiles make beautiful wall hangings and drapes, bed covers or table covers.
