Vintage Suzanis

From the Persian word suzan, meaning needle, suzanis are heirloom textiles from central Asia. Noted for their intricate, colorful designs, suzanis are created over generations, drawn by the matriarch then cut and sewn by the women of the family as a rite of passage. Suzanis can be used as wall hangings, bed coverings, or tablecloths. Each one-of-a kind vintage suzani bears the marks of its creators and natural marring from aging, travel, and years of use.
