Zazi textiles, also known as Katawaz, originate in south eastern Afghanistan. The textiles feature a silk background fabric with tiny embroidered stitching in silk thread defining the pattern. Pieces often consist of layered rectangles framing a central symmetrical geometric design with metallic braiding, tiny precise stitching and glass seed bead tassel edging. The stitching is gorgeous, tiny and even with designs reflecting both the beauty of nature and life of spirit through the choice of colors and fluidity of the design.
Vintage and antique textiles have experienced a full life before making their way to our stores. A vintage item of exceptional quality should not be viewed as brand new, as it shows signs of a lifetime, or several, being used and appreciated by its original makers. Evidence of this well-lived life may be visible in slightly distressed fabric, loose threads, small tears, non-standard sizes and other unique imperfections.
