Kalotaszeg Wall Hanging 200 x 66cmWall hanging 200 x 66cm
Pillar box red on a pale home-loomed cloth. Beautifully embroidered in what is known as "writing stitch" the pattern was drawn on the cloth by a "writing woman" ( most villages had at least one) and then embroidered by another woman.
This piece has been kept in a dowry chest in a small village n the Kaolotasezg region in Transylvania. I bought it from a woman who had been passed it by her mother in law some 40 years ago
