Guimarães Embroidery fan
The embroidery of Guimarães is a delicate and rigorous work of cotton thread on homemade linen, a feminine craft, which has evolved from the popular embroideries used in traditional costumes. The originality of this embroidery, one of the oldest in Portugal, is the amount of a specific needlework called “purl”, which is a very fine thread curled in a spiral, in relation to the enormous diversity of needlework used and the singularity of the geometric drawings of floral inspiration.
This Terra Lusa product was inspired by the patterns of the embroidery of Guimarães, which are handicraft products certified by Adere-Minho, with registered trademark and GI – Geographical Indication of A Oficina of Guimarães.
