Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile made in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries.

Suzani usually have a cotton (sometimes silk) fabric base, which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread.

Popular design motifs include sun and moon disks, flowers (especially tulips, carnations, and irises), leaves and vines, fruits (especially pomegranates), and occasional fish and birds.

The oldest surviving suzanis are from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but it seems likely that they were in use long before that.

Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day.  These hand-embroidered vintage suzanis are infused with the character that only comes from everyday use (Wikipedia).

Today Suzani are used to enhance any interior design, be traditional, eclectic or modern. They are used as pillows, upholstery fabrics, bedspreads, table covers or wall hangings.
