Trend Alert: Suzani

In its most general sense, the Uzbek word "suzani" means needlework. However, most suzani lovers associate the word with the intricate, beautiful, and colorful embroidery work made by women in the Central Asian country of Uzbekistan.

To hear more about the history (and future) of suzani textiles, as well as to see some great suzani products, just

In the 19th century, Uzbek women made prayer mats, embroidered hangings, bed covers, and other household textiles for their homes and for dowries. Women continued to embroider these beautiful patterns during the Soviet era, and after Westerners became familiar with the beautiful textiles, the price went up dramatically. You can now find suzanis all over the Eastern and Western world, and even at stores as mainstream as Garnet Hill and Anthropologie.

i can make needlework (suzanduzi) and it's price is not that expensive in my country yet, we do this work as a hobby and i learned it last year, it is also used for dresses and pants shoes handbags, but in very small sizes, these pictures shown here are not what is originally used

I agree with ashcwebb, in small doses, it would like nice. A mix of folk-artsy and funky.

It's very folksy, yet pretty. Not the style for my house, but I can appreciate the craftsmanship.
