"Suzani" is a term for embroidered textiles that originated hundreds of years ago in Central Asia. According to local custom, a suzani was started every time a girl was born. Each female family member would embroider a different panel of cloth with hand-spun silk. When the girl was of marrying age, all panels would be sewn together, and used as a dowry. With so many women participating in its creation, the suzani became a form of artistic expression and communication for women.
The legacy of the suzani has endured, yet evolved- while no longer used as dowry pieces, the exquisite textiles are still crafted as works of art. Each suzani available at Larkin Lane Designs is a hand-embroidered, one of a kind piece to treasure.
