Book Description

This ribbon embroidery book breaks through the traditional style of western silk ribbon embroidery by incorporating traditional Chinese elements.

Silk ribbon embroidery is an antique handicraft that dates back to the 18th century in Europe. It uses colourful ribbons as the main material to stitch floral patterns on to fabric. Perfect for beginners, this book guides you through the whole process from sketching, threading, knotting, maintenance, material and tool selections. All basic stitches are illustrated with step-by-step instructions and detailed photography. After learning the fundamentals, you can then move onto application. There are 20+ projects ranging from small scale decoration and a handheld fan to a large scale triptych and stitched framed art. Designs range from flowers and trees to fish and architecture.
