Embroideries

 

The ancient art of sicilian embroideries dates back to the XIV century. The fabric is unthreaded both along the warp and the weft thus obtaining the "rete a nodi" (knot web), which is decorated with precious threads to create "rete margherita" (daisy web), "San Marco" , "giglio" (lily web), "quattrocento" etc.

 

Laces

 

Laces are used to make our products more precious and refined. Macramé is a refined lace made by interweaven and tied threads. Tombolo is a delicate and valuable lace realized with very fine cotton threads. Crochet lace is obtained with a continuous thread by the workmanship, stitch by stitch, with an instrument called "uncinetto" (crochet).
