Suzane translated from Farsi means "Needle" - embroidered with a needle. The suzane embroidered by Madina Kasimbaeva belongs to the Shakhrisabz region "Shakhrisabz, lakai." Madina deeply appreciates the value of her ancestral handicraft.
Madina uses silk threads coloured with natural dyes from various plants, fruits, vegetables. In her suzanne, she uses only natural silk threads purchased in the city of Margilan and ground fabric made of natural adrass, which is hand woven in the city of Margilan. She can work up to 8 months on a single piece - first drawing the design and embroidering it with the help of her students.
Madina feels that suzane helped her to realise herself and her own path, to revive family traditions and help other people’s livelihood. In return, she pays utmost respect to its origin, traditional appearance and she works hard to transfer these traditional skills and appreciation to next generation.
