- Featuring many previously unseen antique suzanis with glorious colors - New research of interest to both novices and experts - A must-have for textile lovers Suzanis, the exquisite hand-embroidered panels from Central Asia, have captured the hearts and minds of collectors and decorators for many years. Joyful and exuberant, they are a bridge to a past way of life in which textiles permeated every facet of existence. While today they adorn the walls of museums and can be spotted in homes designed by interior designers such as Robert Kime and Beata Heuman, not much is known about their history. This book sets out to change that. Through the lens of one of the best collections of suzanis in the world, we delve into the history of Central Asia and understand more about the women who painstakingly stitched these works of art. A true delight for all who have experienced the magic of the suzani, this publication pairs beautiful visuals with engaging new research.
Christian Erber is one of the world's most knowledgeable collectors of suzanis. His insights are complemented by scholarly contributions from Penny Oakley and Markus Voigt.
