The term «suzani» («needle», «to sew by a needle») comes from the Tadjik language «suzan» - "needle". Suzani, suzane, is the decoratively embroidered panel on either a white or colored cotton or silk fabric, widespread among the people of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and used as an interior decoration item. Suzani was part of the bride's compulsory dowry. Traditionally, embroidery began at the birth of the daughter and continued until the bride's dowry had not been fully collected. However, the domestic use of such embroideries also had a ritual character related to ancient beliefs in the national consciousness: embroideries as a whole, and their separate patterns in the representation of people had a magical character, served for a young couple as a talisman against evil spirits that could harm. Suzani's key designs are nests, flowers, bird images, ancient magical symbols.
Suzani has many classifications, such as:
Joynomoz - a rug for a prayer - prayer should not be done on a bare floor
Bolinpush - a cover for pillows
