I believe this is a contemporary rushnyk (ceremonial towel) design for a couple of reasons: First, because the source is a contemporary Russian or Ukrainian magazine (can't tell; I had to get Google to translate), and second, because of the double ring motif in the top border. This suggests the rushnyk is meant to be used for a wedding.
