Suzani Textiles June 05 2007

Freshly returned from her latest adventure, Rebecca brings us Suzanis from Uzbekistan! Used for centuries in Central Asia as dowries, tent hangings, and baby carriers these unusual, hand-embroidered tapestries work perfectly as bedspreads or wall coverings. Vegetable dyed silk threads are immaculately woven into breathtaking designs on a linen field. Each one is unique and will make a delightful keepsake to pass on for generations to come.
