Vintage Uzbek Suzani Cushion
Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile made in Uzbekistan and other Central Asian countries. Suzani's usually have a cotton (sometimes silk) fabric base, which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread. Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. These hand-embroidered vintage suzanis are infused with the character that only comes from everyday use. Please note this piece is made from very old, vintage fabric: there will be signs of age, we think this is part of its beauty. With a new feather down inner and a contrast backing. One only.
