Fine table linen, beautifully embellished with ”punto tirato” trim.

Elaborate and precise, this drawn thread embroidery is hand stitched.

At the beginning of the last century, daughters from noble families lavishly adorned their trousseau with this fine embroidery known as ”punto tirato“. Today there are only a few skilled people left who are competent in this traditional craft.
To create the 2cm (0.8") wide ”punto tirato“ hemstitch, 22 threads are carefully pulled from the fabric, using the remaining threads to form stitched groups of 6. The result is a delicate pattern that forms a filigree frame around the cloth.
Elegant, softly flowing fabric, elaborately adorned with glittering stars.
The use of the finest metallic thread makes the gold or silver coloured stars look wonderfully festive. The top quality 14cm (5.5") wide hem is double-layered and stitched with envelope corners. A perfect blend of polyester and viscose gives this fine fabric a soft feel and makes it easy to maintain: Just pop it in the washer at 60°C. The polyester fibre is treated with a special finish which not only keeps the fabric from fading, but also gives it a velvety smooth drape. 100% polyester.
