Suzanis, Suzanis, SUZANIS!
Do you know what Suzanis are? They are large embroidered textiles originally from Central Asia.
Traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. They represent an artistic realization of prayers for blessing and happiness of the future young family.
My fav's are the antique Suzanis (hand embroidered)....A great source for these is over at ebay.
Now they seem to be popping up all over the place....Calico Corners has a Suzani inspired fabric....
I am crazy for these chairs...all 3 of them. I have a favorite, the orange one, but seriously I want 1 of each..
How do you feel about Suzanis? Do you feel the need to inject some color/life into your own color palette?
