Suzani Kilims, from the Persian word for needlework, suzankari, are carefully and expertly hand embroidered using brightly coloured wool and cotton. This Tulip design presents coloured, striped blooms set between tiny coloured flowers; although the structure of the pattern repeats, the colours continuously change so you are guaranteed to spot something new every time you look at it. Use it as a rug or hang as a piece of art to add character to both traditional and contemporary interiors.
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.
