Pillow made from a vintage hand-embroidered suzani tapestry. Solid linen back. Suzani is a Persian word meaning "needle work," and these beautiful tapestries were made popular by trade through the silk routes. The botanical motif stitchings are hand-done by women in nomadic tribes in Uzbekistan and are rich in history, telling stories of the individual women's lives and their community, from birth to marriage. Hidden zipper closure and down fill. Age wear to vintage fabric.
