Embroidered Runner

Cretan embroidery is easily identifiable for its feather stitch, unlike any other Greek Isles needle work. The yarn used is uncoiled and the effect is similar to herringbone stitch with a braid like line in the center of the motif.This table runner has floral field and a border of meandering vines. As for the colors, one suspects that they are faded though the fade is very even.
