The six beautiful floral medallions are all approximately the same size – the suzani appears foreshortened in my photograph.
The narrow black applied border has been elaborately machine-stitched. Borders like this became a popular finishing touch to suzanis from the Soviet era when sewing machines came into widespread use.
