Suzani in ancient Persian means needle. These Ballerina flats are both hand and machine embroidered in small workshops in Turkey where whole families work on the production. Boots are made of embroidered velvet and lined in soft Nappa leather. The machines used for embroidery are old fashioned treadle machines and it is amazing that they still work. The colors and patterns are all a combination of age old tribal flower configurations.
A one-of a kind design.
