Due to the unique and handmade nature of this suzani, small faults, pen marks and other inconsistencies are a norm and only prove the authenticity of the piece.
Flaws, such as voids of missing stitching, a tattered edge, or the occasional pen markings of the quilter’s hand-drawn patterns are not considered among collectors and admirers to detract from the beauty of the quilt.
