Embroidery Thread




    Decorating a fabric with thread and needle is one of the most ancient arts in history. Embroidery is believed

to be over 2000 years old and, thoughout time, men and women used it for home decoration, garments and

religious vestments as a mark of wealth and status. 


    The art of embroidering has evolved in many different ways and nowadays, besides its unquestionable utility

value, it is mostly enjoyed as a technique which can slow down the pace of life, support relaxation and self

expression. Through embroidery, people truly experience the pleasure of creating something unique, for

themselves or to offer to those they love.
