I absolutely love the richness and tradition behind embroidered Suzani textiles. The colorful, needlepointed fabric dates as far back as the late 18th century and was often exchanged like currency or used as dowry payments in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. In case you’re in the market for authentic Suzani, eBay has a huge selection with great prices. You can thank me later!
