An Embroidered Past


Centuries ago, nomadic tribespeople in Central Asia made large-scale, hand-embroidered textiles for their yurts, or tents. The colorful patterns, made with vegetal dyes, often depict flowers and dowries, where they have been thought to represent, and to bring, good luck, health, long life and fertility. Today's suzanis, antique or new, continue to bring life and vibrancy into your home.
