OH SUZANI!



Donghia's Suzani Jacquard fabric in Blue Bliss in a room by designer Jeffery Bilhuber

Bright punctuations of color really appeal to me- I guess that's why I seem to be constantly drawn to the vibrant colors and beautiful patterns which are hallmarks of Suzani-the intricate Central Asian embroidered cloth.  Persian for "needle," Susani fabric is a folk art tradition, lovingly handmade and handed down for centuries, just like our American quilt.  The brilliant cloth seems to be all the rage these days, covering tables, chairs and even walls in their dazzling, artful design. My favorite piece is the brilliant blue painted chair that Jeffrey Bilhuber upholstered in a gorgeous Dongia Suzani-I'll take four chairs please!

I have loved Suzani and Ikats for years, its great to see how wildly popular they have both become over the past several years. I love Donghia's modern adaptation, the Bilhuber vignette is so rich, love it. Why did we get stuck with quilts...

Thanks,
Jaime

Hey People

I wanted to share with you a great site I just came across teaching [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] For All Levels If you guys have seen the Tv Show called Fight Quest you would have seen their chief instructor Ran Nakash there featured on their [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] episode. Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?
