I came across these beautiful suzani pillows by Diodba Home made from globally-sourced hand loomed textiles at the April High Point Market. Some reverse to a silk ikat, where others have just one side that is statement making. The jubilant patterns, done on silk, with embroidery or silk velvet are made of fabrics from across the globe and finished in Los Angeles in limited runs.  They add something special and a pop of color, a tried and true way to change the feeling in a room.
