Our Selection of Heritage Suzani Cushions Inspired by Jane Austen
For this week’s blogpost, we selected four suzani cushions that we were inspired by Jane Austen and her most eminent books. While her use of plots often explored dependence of women on marriage and economic security, she managed to reach to millions with only six pieces fit in during her time.
If you’d like to discover four pieces of hers that we think relate with our hand embroidered cushions, keep reading!
