This exquisite design is inspired by an embroidered table scarf a friend purchased from a needleworker in the Agrinio area of mainland Greece in the 1970s which was in turn inspired by a Greek folk costume. Its vibrant color palette sets a lively rainbow of hues within a traditional terra cotta and black framework for a truly striking and unconventional design. Shown worked as a table runner, it would also make a gorgeous cushion cover by stitching less repeats of the design.
