A delicate placemat embellished with white work embroidery. Specially brought to you from South India, Belgian nuns meticulously hand embroidered the mats on crisp, sheer Organdy with fine cotton thread.
It is an exceptional art sustained in a pocketful of areas. The foliage consists of herringbone stitches, drawn thread work and back stitches that are less than one third of a millimetre wide. The borders are carefully sandwiched on the edges with a row of drawn thread work sure to make you squint in appreciation.
