Antique Embroidered Transylvanian Cushion Cover

Antique embroidered cushion cover from the Kalotaszeg region of Transylvania, Romania

Using the "irasos" technique, the pattern was dram by a " writing woman, usually there was one in each village and embroidered by another woman.  This one is embroidered in Volga cotton ( volga is the name of the yarn factory situated in Sibiu) on a home  loomed hemp..  Different batches of volga cotton faded at different rates hence I think the variation of tones in this cover

Laundered and in excellent condition

48 x 43 cm
 

Slit opening at base with tie fastening. Note that the opening is quite small and suits a feather filler
