We would like to present you the most impressing part of Afghanistan handmade embroideries - Suzani. This name of the exquisite cotton mural embroideries comes from Persian "sozan" which means "a needle".
Afghan Handmade Suzanis give us an opportunity to have a great insight into the old culture and tradition of this land. Such works of art were prepared and used for ceremonial events like wedding, fittings for horses and horseman and the general embellishment of reception. Traditionally this embroidery work began at the birth of a daughter and continued, with the help of family and friends,until the bride's dowry was complete. The patterns of Suzanis are expressions of women's mood and fantasies, and not only that most of all, Suzanis are last exponents of an age old tradition which draws our attention by its mystery and beauty.
