Suzani embroidery, which comes from the Persian word for needle, was a specialty of Central Asia. Some of the best examples were made by young brides from prosperous Tajik families in Uzbekistan, who would embroider bedcovers and hangings as part of their dowry. Here, artisans in Rajasthan India—a region that shares Uzbekistan’s Mughal influence—adapt the orange and gold pattern of an antique Uzbek suzani textile to cover a low ottoman like those found in tearooms throughout the subcontinent. The colorful accent is perfect as casual party seating, to display your favorite coffee-table books, or for propping your feet and relaxing with family.


A $10 shipping surcharge will be added. Not available for shipment outside of the continental U.S. Minor assembly required.


Made in Rajasthan, India. Cotton canvas and mango wood. 31" square x 15 1/2"H.


Spot clean.

During the 1st century AD, glass production in the Roman world drastically changed as the art of glass blowing was discovered and vessels for everyday use began to be made in aqua hues. Remains of many 2,000-year-old drinking glasses, vases, and jugs continue to be uncovered across the former Roman Empire, especially in Israel. Each glass medallion in this remarkable necklace was once part of an object that was created more than two millennia ago. It may have been part of a water vessel carried by a servant, or a bottle that held perfume or medicine.
