Oh Suzani

I mentioned recently that I’d been seeing the Ikat pattern everywhere.

It’s not the only pattern that I’ve been noticing, The other is the Suzani.

The Suzani pattern hails from Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and other Central Asian countries. Like the Ikat it was lost during the time of the Soviet Occupation but since the collapse of the Union these handcrafts are seeing a resurgence.

The pattern originally is embroidered with chain, satin and buttonhole stitches and embellished with decorative thread laid on the fabric. The motifs in the designs depict the sun and moon, flowers, leaves, fruit and sometimes fish and birds.

I love the bright colours and organic shapes of the Suzani patterns we are seeing today. What about you? Do you like the pattern?
