White work was produced across the Islamic work. It is easily distinguished from European white work but it is more difficult to differentiate between the sources within the Islamic world. Islamic white work is done on cotton ground with the work done in silk. The needlework here is done in chain stitches and pulled work where counted threads are pulled together and wrapped.

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!
