Bring exotic prints to your home with this Suzani embroidered cushion from Heritage Geneve. We used hand embroidered Suzani in one side and hand waived Silk fabric on the other side.
Crafted from the finest Uzbek Suzani & Silk fabric , designed & produced in Istanbul and France Provence dried lavender has been sealed into the luxurious duck feather pad from UK; setting these wonderful cushions apart from the rest. From traditional to contemporary interiors, our cushions are now the “must have” for clients.
Suzanis are given to the groom as a bride’s dowry. Due to the intricate work involved in making them, it is common for the suzani maker (usually the mother of the bride) to sketch the design on to the fabric (this is why we sometimes see pencil marks on the fabric) and divide it among many women in the village or family who helps embroidered them separately. Once complete, it is sewn back together to create one large, decorative piece.
They represented the binding together of two families, and were adorned with symbols of luck, health, long life and fertility.
In every authentic suzani, you will find a small deliberate fault or unfinished area, as a reminder that humanbeing is not without mistakes, and also expresses the dream of the mother that her daughter will be then be inspired to “finish” the suzani and continue in the art of suzani embroidery.
Due to the fabrics used and their special designs all our cushions are limited edition.
Forget matchy-matchy. We are loving our wide assortment of Suzani embroidered Pillows. Lovely patterns are backed in silk prints, each more unique than the next. No two are alike, and we really like that.
