Note from the designer: "The history of Hungarian embroidery goes back thousands of years. Early in its history, Hungarian weaving and embroidery was primarily a male profession. However, it was soon joined by women creating beautiful textiles for their clothing and their homes. Although the practice of this lovely art is declining, the traditional motifs that have bloomed throughout all these years continue to remain an important expression of the Hungarian culture.
Hungary proudly claims there are more than twenty folkloric regions, each with their own distinct motifs. This particular design is my own interpretation and culmination of the many beautiful embroideries I had the pleasure of viewing during my research, which I now present here in the art of cross-stitch rather than embroidery."
