The word suzane in translation means "embroidered with a needle" in Russian from where the designer is based. Popular design motifs include the sun and the moon and flowers. Depicted on this shirt is a circle symbolizing the strength of a woman, a circle as a symbol of power. From ancient times, embroidered panels were invariably present in every house. They decorated walls, they served as amulets. The girl captured in this season's story began to embroider her suzane at the age of 12 and was supposed to complete all embroidery for her wedding.
