  1. Wow. 🙂 From what I recall, Ottoman, or oriental embroidery still uses some techniques different from Western embroidery styles, right?. And, boy, those produce(d) stunning results….

    • To be honest, I’m still learning about the different embroidery techniques so I can’t say for sure but I believe you’re right. Whatever the technique, it’s hard to argue with the results. 😉

      • Very very hard indeed. 🙂 And, from the little I know, it seems to be a technique close to what we know as pearl embroidery over here.
