The other day, a friend had asked my opinion of my top 3 Suzanis to use at the foot of her bed. I love suzanis. I love the global appeal, the vibrant colors, and the interesting patterns. However, I feel like they have become slightly overused. It got me thinking-what else would add color, interest, and a sense of worldliness to an otherwise simple, white bed. I guess I’m more drawn to the graphic patterns rather than the swirls and florals that dominate suzanis. Here are my choices…
African Print Sarong Towel available through Steven Alan
I use one of these at the foot of my bed.
Bolivian Aguayos-available at Laviva Home (one of the coolest stores out there)
These are the same blankets that I posted here.
Navajo Chief Blanket-available at Navajo Textiles (this store is an amazing resource for these types of blankets)
Here is a shot of Abdulla at the Grand Bazaar from my recent trip to Istanbul
But here is my pick for one of my favorites-available from Uzbek-Craft
