  • The Newberry Collection of Islamic Embroideries by Ruth Barnes and Marianne Ellis

    The Newberry Collection of Islamic Embroideries

    A large vertical trefoil and a horizontal half-trefoil are embroidered along a seam. The design is defined by two parallel outlines worked in stem stitch, filled with dark blue satin stitch embroidery fields alternating with unembroidered areas.

    The seam is a false hem; it probably was part of the edge of a garment. The embroidery was done after the hem had been added.
