This vintage St. Frank pillow was created in Uzbekistan. Embroidered with a tambour hook, suzani is a handmade, Central Asian textile characterized by floral patterns and meandering vines. A specialist known as a chizmachi draws out the suzani pattern and gives each fabric strip to an embroiderer. The finished pieces are then sewn back together. The result, an ornate work created by several hands, features charming irregularities and subtle mismatches that balance out the precision of the stitch. The symbols seen here represent tiger stripes, connoting strength and courage.
