Variana Velvet Suzani Vest features an oversize vest made with dropped shoulders and pockets at body front. All seams are covered with striped cotton block print bindings for a nice finish. The vest comes with a detachable belt to enhance a feminine silhouette. This vest is made in a cotton velvet blanket decorated with colorful Suzani embroidery all over.
This Suzani item is not only full of beautiful colors – the embroidery is also made by hand. The Suzani embroidery is made by Indian artisans, using the tambour to create a unique, vivid, and beautiful Suzani embroidery pattern. The name “Suzani” comes from the Persian word "su-zan," meaning needle. Our Indian artisans use a hooked needle instrument called a tambour to create the intricate chain stitching that is the hallmark of Suzani embroidery. When buying our Suzani embroidered styles, you are supporting local artisans and responsible slow fashion.
