'Suzani' is from the Persian 'Suzan' which means 'needle'. Suzani textiles were traditionally made by brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. These large embroidered dowry textiles of Turkish groups are so named because of the many hundreds of hours of needlework required to produce them.
