The wonderful combination of stitches and yarns of this embroidered linen gives a three dimensional effect as some elements catch the light in contrast to the heavier, main body of embroidery. A large design that combines two vertical coloured stripes and white highlights against a natural ground.
Look carefully at this seemingly abstract combination of classic patterns and you will see that each one is contained within a silhouette of its country of origin. For example a paisley is shown in the geographical boundaries of India, the same for a Suzhani within Uzbhekistan etc. Such fun to discover these matches for yourself!
