Our beautiful vintage Suzani are handpicked for their beauty and originality. All our Suzani pieces are incredible works of art, individually handmade showing unbelievable attention to detail and skill.
Originating from Central Asia, these Suzani are exemplary works of art and have become highly collectable pieces, not just for their face value beauty, but because of their provenance and significance in human bonds and relationships.
Traditionally the Suzani holds great symbolic significance. Young women helped by their mothers create these glorious pieces of embroidery as a symbol of longevity, fertility and love, which ultimately gets presented on the wedding day. Often the piece is not completed until after marriage and the finalisation of the piece is thought to bring protection, happiness and completion in life.
Typical Suzani embroidery depicts symbols of fertility and life including pomegranate, tulips, irises and vines.
This Suzani is a beautiful example depicting images of pomegranates and tulips in blues, reds and greens.
