The woven textile is finished with our flax linen backing and closed by an invisible zipper with a gold pull. Our signature St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of the pillow. The cushion is stuffed with an oversized down insert. The pillow dimensions are 19" W x 18" H.

Please note that as unique, handmade art, no two pillows are ever exactly the same and color varies across monitors. Our website photos are a close representation of this pillow, but may not be identical to the one you receive.

This vintage St. Frank pillow was created in Uzbekistan. Embroidered with a tambour hook, suzani is a handmade, Central Asian textile characterized by floral patterns and meandering vines. A specialist known as a chizmachi draws out the suzani pattern and gives each fabric strip to an embroiderer. The finished pieces are then sewn back together. The result, an ornate work created by several hands, features charming irregularities and subtle mismatches that balance out the precision of the stitch. The symbols seen here represent tiger stripes, connoting strength and courage.
