Suzani is a type of decorative and embroidered tribal textile made in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian counties. Suzani is from the Persian Suzan which means needle. The art of making such textiles in Iran is called Suzandozi (needlework).
One of our customers wanted to recreate the look of a Suzani, but in chenille. They wanted to be able to reproduce this fabric commercially whilst retaining the handmade/patchwork look. We worked together and created a random very large scale design that repeats over 3m! It is then randomly cut and used to upholster chairs.by
