2. Assisi embroidery
Assisi embroidery is a form of counted thread embroidery based on an ancient Italian needlework tradition in which the background is filled with embroidery stitches and the main motifs are outlined but not stitched. The name is derived from the Italian town of Assisi where the modern form of the craft originated.
3. Bargello
Bargello is a type of needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. The name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello palace in Florence, which have a flame stitch pattern.Traditionally, Bargello was stitched in wool on canvas.Embroidery done this way is remarkably durable. It is well suited for use on pillows, upholstery and even carpets, but not for clothing. In most traditional pieces, all stitches are vertical with stitches going over two or more threads.
4. Berlin wool work
Berlin wool work is a style of embroidery similar to today needlepoint. It was typically executed with wool yarn on canvas. It is usually worked in a single stitch, such as cross stitch or tent stitch although Beeton book of Needlework (1870) describes 15 different stitches for use in Berlin work. It was traditionally stitched in many colours and hues, producing intricate three dimensional looks by careful shading. The design of such embroidery was made possible by the great progresses made in dyeing in the 1830s, especially by the discovery of aniline dyes which produced bright colors.This kind of work created very durable and long lived pieces of embroidery that could be used as furniture covers, cushions, bags, or even on clothing.
5. Blackwork
Blackwork, sometimes historically termed spanish blackwork, is a form of embroidery generally using black thread, although other colors were also used on occasion. sometimes it is counted thread embroidery which is usually stitched on even weave fabric. Any black thread can be used, but firmly twisted threads give a better look than embroidery floss. Traditionally blackwork is stitched in silk thread on white or off white linen or cotton fabric. sometimes metallic threads or coloured threads are used for accents.scarletwork is like blackwork, except it is sewn with red thread.
