Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Embroidery has been practised for thousands of years throughout the world. In the West, traditions have been subject to trade and fashion, but across the continents of the less-developed world, embroidery continues to be rooted in ancient beliefs and superstitions. This book examines in detail the symbolism of the motifs and designs of these textiles.
