Maria Baumann is the daughter of Manina Baumann who imports beautiful embroidered, Uzbek-textiles called suzanis. These textiles have a long and rich history and Maria has added even more magic and joy to their long tradition by creating new South African versions of them. The Tree-of-Life is a timeless motif and often found in the suzanis. This circular tray features such a tree, each branch providing a perch to a South African bird.
