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.
Inspired by Laura Ashley style, this hand stitched gros point cover is framed with bows and ribbons, adding interest to an otherwise monotonous printed fabric design. The dance of ribbons and bows creates a sense of humour without compromising the integrity of a formal design. Coral or Apricot peach and dove gray are complimentary decorating colours to any formal country home.
