Collection: SUZANI MASTERPIECES

From ancient times, embroidered textiles and wall hangings have been a part of almost every house across Central Asia, especially in Uzbekistan. And they still are. They adorn walls; serve as talismans, used for drapes and furnishings, personal attire and protective coverings. The embroidery skills and decorative designs from Uzbekistan are some of the most iconic found in Central Asia. The designs are often bold and dramatic, both in pattern and colour combinations.

The suzani is the perfect example of an enduring craft that has forever bound, in every stitch and motif, the hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears of its makers who lived, and still live, in one of the harshest landscapes in the world.

A suzani (from suzan, the Persian word for “needle”) is a type of embroidered dowry textile made in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. For centuries, nomadic women from these regions used lush silk threads to embroider these dowry pieces on a cotton base. The oldest surviving suzanis are from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but it seems likely that they were being made long before that. In the early 15th century, Ruy Gonzáles de Clavijo, a Castilian ambassador to the court of Timur (Tamerlane), left detailed descriptions of embroideries that were probably forerunners of the suzani.
