Discovering Suzani

File:Shakhrisabz Suzani.jpg

Just discovered the marvellous art of Suzani, a needlework tradition that has been perfected by urban peoples of Central Asia. The technique is based on the use of a needle sewing on cotton orlinen fabric with special traditional designs associated usually with local symbolism.
The exemplar about dates back to 1850, and includes floral and vine designs. Made in  Uzbekistan.
