Chair Dilbar is a crapaud chair. The first fully upholstered chair arose in the mid-nineteenth century. Dilbar is adjusted to MOMIQ design and is covered with a Kelim fabric from Turkey at the front. Kelim is the term for a special weaving technique of rugs that are made of wool. The back of Dilbar is covered with a Suzani fabric from Uzbekistan. Suzanis are embroidered pieces of cloth made by women in the region of Central Asia. They are an important part of a girl’s dowry and are also used for decorative purposes in Central Asian households. Kelims and suzanis used to be dyed with natural pigments extracted from, for example, the root of the madder plant, walnuts, indigo plants, pomegranates and sumac berries.
