Brunschwig & Fils' Dzhambul
This colorful linen-and-cotton Brunschwig & Fils' print first caught my eye last year as I flipped through Domino's premiere issue (the editors' used it to cover a pouf). I think it was the punchy mix of aqua, orange and raspberry, and the suzani-inspired design that drew me in.
Note the similarities to the late-19th-century Bukhara suzani in Doris Duke's collection? Densely embroidered coverlets like this were historically made by Central Asian women, and Duke became enamored with the textiles while circumventing the globe in the 1930s. More on Duke's many suzanis to follow in an upcoming post...
