Greek Islands Composite Panel

Greek Island composites were pretty much about recycling old embroidery into a new utilitarian cloth. The embroidery fragments used tends to be of the most recent vintage in the center while the older pieces are found around the edges. The new usage is most often as a prayer arches or covers as befits textiles that are not very durable.As in this example, the origins of the fragments used can be diverse and include Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Turkey, not just the Greek Isles.
