Warning: Last items in stock!
This table of common tinctorial plants is a cross stitch embroidery pattern chart derived from our spectacular project dedicated to Tinctorial Plants in the Museums and Heritage Collection.
Woad, Dyers rocket, madder and woodruff, indigo and parsley are all plants found on road sides and gardens.
Many tree leaves can also be used for dyeing, such as the walnut leaves forming the frame of this embroidery.
As for the little touches of pink in the leaves, these are not flowers, but cochineals! These little insects (Coccus Cacti) give a whole range of magnificent colours from pink to the brightest of reds.
The full colour pattern chart is printed on a large 60cm x 29cm sheet of paper with all the necessary explanations. It is presented in a Sajou pouch.
Size of motif: 180 points square.
When embroidered on 12 count/centimetre linen fabric the finished dimensions are 30 x 30cm.
We recommend our cyclamen linen which highlights the motif.
