Suzani is a type of embroirdered and decorative tribal textile made in central Asia.
Suzanis usually have a cotton fabric base which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread.Suzanis are often made in two or more pieces and then stitched together.For large suzanis several of the fabric strips are firstly sown loosely together and the pattern is drawn on them; then they are taken apart so that two or more family members,mother,sisters,cousins, aunties can work on the embroidery simultaneously. Later when the panels are rejoined, the pattern parts may not match perfectly, and extra stitches may be added in the areas along the seams. It's the old traditional approach in this hand crafted art form.
Hand embroidered suzanis are labour- intensive projects, so that is not surprising that needlework begins shortly after a daughters birth.
Popular design motifs include moon and sun disks, flowers (which include carnations,tulips and irises), leaves and vines, fruits(especially pomegranates), and occasianal fish and birds.
Suzanis were traditionally made by central asian brides and part of thier dowry and presented to the groom on the wedding day.
