px kazakh rug chain stitch embroidery


Embroidery is the
handicraft of decorating
fabric or other materials
with needle and thread
or yarn. Embroidery may
also incorporate other
materials such as metal
strips, pearls, beads,
quills, and sequins.
Embroidery is most
often used on caps,
hats, coats, blankets,
dress shirts, denim,
stockings, and golf
shirts. Embroidery is
available with a wide
variety of thread or
yarn color.

An interesting
characteristic of
embroidery is that the
basic techniques or
stitches on surviving
examples of the
earliest embroidery—
chain stitch, buttonhole
or blanket stitch
, running stitch, satin
stitch, cross stitch—
remain the fundamental
techniques of hand
embroidery today.
