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.
Periwinkle Blue has been an herbal remedy with a rich history in folk medicine. The purple-flowered plant was called sorcerer’s violet by superstitious Europeans in the Middle Ages and was renowned for its power to dispel evil spirits. It is now popular among gardeners for ground coverage. This pillow is a beautifully hand made rendition of the 5-petals flower.
As a chair pad cover…it is durable, and is colour fast. Best of all, it is beautifully hand made and requires minimum care.
