The design and style of Fez embroidery, like many other regional Moroccan embroideries, shows Hispano Mooresque influence. Design elements are often abstracted florals and geometrics. The handwork is executed in a counted thread technique such as reversible double running stitch, stem stitch, and back stitch to create highly complex reversible embroidered patterns. Typical of Fez regional style, this embroidery fragment is monochromatic and made with tightly coiled silk on cotton, and was likely part of a pillow casing or other domestic furnishing.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
