If you've checked out our Instagram - it's no secret that we're inspired by the
colorful, botanic embroidery of vintage Suzani textile. Not only are they beautiful
pieces, but they also have a rich history (plus these ones are lined with a high
quality faux fur, making them winter worthy too).
The creation of Suzani textiles are deep rooted in Uzbekistan tradition.
They were created when a daughter was born and worked on by female
family members and friends throughout her life, until used as her dowry.
Women hand embroidered separate strips, which would later be pieced
together to form one Suzani. This contributed to some asymmetrical qualities
and slight variations throughout the fabric, whic ultimately makes each piece
The craftsmanship of these handmade, hand-stiched pieces is brilliant. The
camaraderie of the village woman that made them is inspiring too!
