Another team work!
This time, Gisela Silvestre and I, we adapted the design from a traditional Portuguese carpet. It's from Arraiolos a small and very beautiful village in the center-south of Portugal, internationally known by its famous tapestries.
Embroidered in a simple "petit point" once the typical Arraiolos stich is not valorised in a miniature work, the main field is deep green with tinny buttons surrounded by a frieze of delicate pink roses on a light cream background, following a classical design.
The result is "super". The work of Gisela is preciously perfect! I would love to have one, real scale, for my home.
Bellow, some pictures of details
