Look carefully at this seemingly abstract combination of classic patterns and you will see that each one is contained within a silhouette of its country of origin. For example a paisley is shown in the geographical boundaries of India, the same for a Suzhani within Uzbhekistan etc. Such fun to discover these matches for yourself!
Dragon and Peony
Inspired by antique fabric hangings which can combine two totally different disparate textiles. DRAGON AND PEONY mixes a very large peony motif with a wide dragon border. The design offers so many make-up options - cutting off the dragon borders to add to the bottom of a curtain, or perhaps hanging horizontally as a very wide border on a plain velvet curtain.
The wonderful combination of stitches and yarns of this embroidered linen gives a three dimensional effect as some elements catch the light in contrast to the heavier, main body of embroidery. A large design that combines two vertical coloured stripes and white highlights against a natural ground.
