1970s Unlabeled Vintage Suzani Hand Embroidered Pink Open Front Coat
This is a lovely vintage Suzani coat that is in very good condition. The condition makes it very hard to place a date on it but I would think based on the needlework and fabrics that it is some time in the last 30-40 years. The term Suzani is from the Persian word that means needle. Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. They are wonderful collectible pieces and this one is exceptionally pretty. The base fabric is a deep pink silk that has bright colorful embroidery covering its surface. It is all done by hand and you can easily see the hand work on the inside. The interior is finished in a tangerine cotton and I love that flash of color when it opens It simply slips on and ties at the front. It is a pretty piece of history and can be worn as a light day or evening coat for a fresh pop of color. Silk fabric with cotton lining. Excellent condition
It slips on the wear and ties at the front as seen. The loose and easy cut should allow it to fit a variety of sizes. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
