Needlepoint in the United Kingdom is often referred to as “tapestry” or “canvaswork”, that is, stitched by needlepoint on stiff open grid canvas mesh. When worked on fine weave canvas, it is also known as “Petitpoint”. Our needlepoint designs are hand crafted with only a basic and simple “tent stitch”, and rely on colour changes in the wool yarn to construct the pattern.

Our regular decorative needlepoint pillows have 132 stitches per square inch. Our Petit Point pillows have an incredible 576 stitches per square inch for even greater detail. Several of our pillows are a mix stitch of regular grosse point Needlepoint and Petit Point stitch. They are indeed a beautiful expression of hand artistry and timeless beauty.

In the late 1950s a mutation in red and red tabby Persians produced the “peke-faced” Persian, named after the flat-faced Pekingese dog. This pillow is an exquisite depiction of the peke-faced Persian. The expert stitching and change of various shades of colour yarn reflect the highly skilled needlepoint workmanship. It is amazing how the fine stitches of Petit Point can bring life to the eyes and the nose.  Limited quantity.


Below is a close-up image to demonstrate the fine petit point work. Look at how adorable and enticing these amber eyes are, beseeching attention!
