a splash of suzani

have you seen this stuff?  wow.  suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile.  suzani is from the persian suzan which means "needle".  suzanis usually have a cotton [sometimes silk] fabric base which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread.  detailed stitching with vibrant threads produces exquisite pieces.  i am thinking that we might need to invest in one of these to add a splash to our bed.
