Suzanis are hand stitched bed coverings created by the once nomadic people who populated the ancient silk road of Uzbekistan. Suzanis were originally crafted as dowry pieces that a mother would help lovingly create for her daughter’s wedding day. It was believed that the patterns and colors in a suzani held talismanic powers of protection and these powers were magically transferred from the mother into the suzani through the visual impact of her embroidery work. From the studios of Sanjar Nazaroz, a UNESCO Award of Excellence winner. This is a stunning museum quality piece. The detail of the embroidery is spectacular. Icy blue silk ground cloth. A dense field of flowers and pomegranates surround the center star medallion and floral motifs, styled with pillows from Morocco. King size. Colors; ground cloth in old gold, embroidery colors golden spring green, prussian blue, robins egg blue, chalky brick red, rich red, silver sand and more. See all of Sanjar's embroidery here.
