Etsy Find: Red/Purple Quarter Whorl Suzani Pillow

The Suzani trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. But the trap with most trends is to buy into a big retailers' interpretation. For instance, Suzani is an intricate, beautiful, and colorful style of needlework that hails from Central Asia, but Natori sells a bedding set that is actually only printed, inspired by patterns often seen in Suzani work. These sorts of products are fleeting in fashion, so if you're going to go for a trend, get the real thing. The Red/Purple Quarter Whorl Suzani Pillow ($148) will do the trick. The pillow is made from a one-of-a-kind recycled antique Suzani textile, which was naturally dyed and embroidered with handspun silk on natural cotton ground. You can't get much more authentic than that.
