Silk Embroidery Herat

These fine silk embroideries are hand embroidered in Herat, Afghanistan (semi-petit point).

Attention: the colorful rectangles, made using the keshide technique, are 6 x 4 cm, the diamonds are 24 cm² in size.

Two virtually identical pieces are also produced, measuring 3 x 4 cm, which can be used, for example, to make earrings.

The large white embroidery, white/white, white/blue, white/yellow, done in Khamakdusi, is 8 x 13 cm in size.

All of these embroideries are washable in the washing machine up to 60°; It’s about silk yarns from the German company MADEIRA Garne, our sponsor.
