Suzani

Suzani embroideries have there origin from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. They are primarily used as bedcovers and wall hangings.  Common motives are the moon disk, flowers such as tulips, carnations, irises and pomegranates. I think they look super contemporary but still have that craft appeal. Iced sea foam and chalk board black look so good together, topped with a cherry pink.
