Suzanis Kilims, from the Persian word for needlework, suzankari, are carefully and expertly hand embroidered using brightly coloured wool and cotton. This Suzani Kilim boasts quirky and colourful animals to brighten and add heaps of character to any room. Hang this in a bedroom or playroom as a tactile piece of artwork, or use as a rug where your children will love playing amongst a menagerie of cool creatures. 

Embroidered with the beautiful, ornate patterns of tribes in Central Asia, usually Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, with written records of Suzani kilims date back to the 15th century. Due to their nomadic lifestyle, practical items such as tents, clothes and even rugs became travelling works of art, decorated with motifs and patterns that would have had significance to the owner.
