Hand embroidered suzani silk cushion, filled with a feather inner.
Each cushion is unique depending on how the original Uzbek suzani textile has been cut, but each of these has a red silk base and the colour combinations shown.
Suzani is a particular cultural craft of Uzbekistan. Traditionally when a baby girl is born the women of the family will draw a design (usually in pen) on a number of panels. Each woman is in charge of completing the design work on her panel. Later the panels are joined together to create one piece and given to the girl on her wedding day. There is usually some piece in the work that is incomplete or unfinished; this is said to represent never-ending happiness in the new marriage.
Due to the above; your Suzani cushion cover will most likely have some marks that attest to its age and handmade nature. We think this is part of its beauty.
