I love the global influences that are saturating the textile and color world. Ethnic patterns and vibrant colors energize us and wake us up! Here is a "Suzanis" (needle work) from Uzbekistan that would give any space a well-traveled look. These beautiful pieces of handwoven art were made in Central Asia for the purpose of being gifted to a daughters' dowries. Today these embroideries are being admired in markets all over the world. Pillows, bed covers, table clothes and wall hanging are just a few ways one can incorporate these textiles that celebrate craftsmanship and tradition. Bohemian chic is colorful and tells a story...hard to ignore. This and much more available at Tessera for one of kind antiques!
