Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile. The birthplace of suzani is in what is now Uzbekistan, the area along the Silk Road.
The suzani was an integral part of a woman's artistic expression in Uzbekistan for hundreds of years. Traditionally, as soon as a girl was born her mother would start embroidering the suzani for her. As the daughter grew older, she would join in the process. The suzani would eventually become a part of her dowry and be used to decorate her home.
