Vintage Suzani Brown Velvet Throw

The rich, chocolate brown velvet of this throw provides the perfect foil for the embroidered flowers from a vintage Tajik suzani. The white silk fabric on which the embroidery was originally done was so worn that the embroidery had to be lifted and put on new fabric. The basma stitch used for the embroidery brings the white, burgundy and mauve flowers to breath taking life. A wide black border with a burgundy piping finishes the piece. This gorgeous and luxurious throw is warm and elegant and would look charming draped on the back of a traditional or contemporary sofa.

The original suzani was an embroidered dowry textile from Tajikistan. According to custom, a suzani was started when a girl was born, in preparation for her wedding and was and is still used to decorate the home. Favourite motifs include the pomegranate which stands for fertility and abundance, flowers and evil eye amulets.
