    This beautifully embroidered textile is carefully stretched around a solid board which is then dropped into the box frame. There is a 2.5cm spacer so the piece sits back into the breathable frame.

    Our acrylic box frames have a split batten and a keyhole mirror plate, either one will allow the piece to sit flat against the wall.

    his piece can be hung landscape or portrait.

  • PROVENANCE

    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.
