The Uzbek Suzani fabric panel is hand embroidered by skilled and talented artisans in Uzbekistan. We source our Uzbek and Central Asian textiles from a wonderful Uzbek antique textile dealer in Istanbul.
The name Suzani comes from the Persian word ‘suzan’ or ‘needle’. These panels were traditionally made by Central Asian brides' families as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day.
Floral motifs are sketched onto the fabric prior to being hand embroidered stitch by stitch, making each panel truly unique. You may see some visible pen marks remain on the final piece, however we feel this represents the story behind the embroidery. These panels are often divided between many women in their village or families to embroider, and are then sewn together to form a larger panel.
