Tuscany lace is believed to be the oldest form of embroidery, which originated from the net-making techniques of fishing communities in Tuscany, Italy. Defined by the square-meshed knotted designs, this needlework style was popular among 16th century aristocracy, and is now making a revival since the 1980’s.
Chrysanthemums have been the symbols of perfection and happiness…qualities that this tablecloth represent! The Tuscany Lace is hand crafted featuring chrysanthemums to mirror the expert embroidery in the four corners, as well as the 4 chrysanthemums in the centre. Available in Round shape or Square shape. Pure and white premium quality cotton. It is All in the Details when we design this tablecloth!
Close-up image illustrates the many hand embroidered techniques and stitches, such as: Long and Short Satin Stitches, Slanted Chain Stitches, Stem Stitches, Pulled Thread embroidery, and lace bars to add interesting accents to the Chrysanthemums.
