Goldstickerei
Goldwork

Wearing clothes with gold embroidery used to be a privilege enjoyed only by the aristocracy and members of the clergy. This technique has been preserved in monastery works, in flag embroidery and traditional costume (headdresses, bodices, bags, etc.). The work, which is all performed on a fabric base, is produced using couching, couching over padding and stitching techniques as well as cantille embroidery and additionally worked with sequins, beads and metal foils.
