One of a kind. This piece is a beautifully handmade Suzani on cotton with silk thread. Kanca means Hook in Uzbek which they often use as aprt of the embroidery process.


    W58cm X H98cm X D4.5cm

    Bespoke framed in wood and then painted in off white.

    As with all our traditionally framed pieces, we frame as green as we can. This beautifully embroidered textile is carefully wrapped around a conservation board and floated on a conservation mount board. We don’t use glue or acid anywhere near the textile. There is a 1.5cm spacer so the piece sits back into the breathable frame.

    The wooden frame is painted with a chemical free waterborne paint.


    The name "Suzani" originates from the Persian word for needle, “suzan”. It is a type of embroidered and decorative textile traditionally handwoven in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan by the women in a bride's family as part of her wedding dowry.

    Each unique design tells a story using traditional symbols and motifs such as the sun and the moon, flowers, leaves and vines, fruits (especially pomegranates - whose seeds symbolise fertility) and sometimes fish and birds. These motifs were believed to imbue the Suzanis with spiritual powers, offering protection or strength to their owners.

    Loom's beautiful Suzanis are handwoven with silk thread and pull on traditional designs with a modern twist.

  • CARE

    With all our frames use a soft cloth to remove any marks. We recommend a microfibre cloth for cleaning. Do not use anything abrasive.
