Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile made in Central Asian countries. Suzanis usually have a cotton (sometimes silk) fabric base, which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread. Chain, satin, and buttonhole stitches are the primary stitches used. Suzanis are often made in two or more pieces, that are then stitched together

Popular design motifs include sun and moon disks, flowers (especially tulips, carnations and irises), leaves and vines, fruits (especially pomegranates), and occasional fish and birds.

Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day.
