Suzanis are known for their strong colours, design and original exotic patterns, based on the traditional art and craft by women in Central Asia. Believed to have originated in the central valleys of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan - the term is derived from the Persian word for needlework, “suzanikari”. The Suzani style has been returning to fashion in textiles and rugs since gaining independence in the 1990’s. We are so glad it has found its place in our collections.
