Story of the pattern
The Patrimony line of accessories gathers unique patterns inspired from folk items that really exist. An exquisite patrimony folk costume has inspired the Earth embroidery pattern. This folk costume was seen in a city on the Danube shore, far from the Black Sea. The costume is difficult to reach, impossible to see online. A regular embroidery richly adorns the folk costume. Cotton thread is used to embroider the blouse. Sleeves are embroidered but the rest of the blouse is much less. A metal thread is used to embroider the skirt. The original skirt is in stunning ocre wool, the blouse is embroidered in brown. These colors come straight from nature, therefore we have named the design “Earth”.
We invite you to connect to the costume through the scarf or a real visit to see the original costume.
