suzani is the common term for embroidered pieces that have been produced for hundreds of years by women in central asian countries.

in our world of machine made, this hand made form survives for now mainly in uzbekistan.

 i feel lucky to own one of these lovely pieces of my own. 

there's a link for a great seller i've used on ebay who ships direct from uzbekistan, a unique piece to decorate with, or even better 

... a cool gift !
