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.
This design is inspired by art deco and contemporary style. An interesting interpretation of combining vintage appearance and modern treatment. The vintage style Woolen Needlepoint Tapestry cover is beautifully hand stitched in gros point. What makes it vintage is the cheerful and bright colour used as piping. Corduroy backing with zipper.
