Embroidery

An ancient art, handed down from mother to daughter, is embroidery. Once widespread, it enriched the trousseau of every houses and was the basis for the bride's dowry. Curtains, sheets, tablecloths, towels were made but also doilies and lace. The most commonly used stitches were tatting stitches, crochet and the Solomon's knot stitch. Valuable artefacts are made using the bobbin lace technique which requires great skills and a good dose of patience.
