This girl’s hat is embroidered with a type of fine cross-stitch called “iroki”. It resembles petit point in appearance and covers the entire surface of the hat.
The Cyrillic letters spell out the girl’s name “GULNOZ” which means “Blooming”. Two small birds of happiness flank each of the flower heads.
