We already have one thread about Indian embroidery
but India isn't the only country with an embroidery tradition, and we have touched briefly on many! Here are just a few, checking as far back as the rollover will let me (2003):
* Armenian embroidery:
* Bunka Shishu (Japanese):
and Japanese embroidery in general:
* Swedish Huck Weaving:
But our past emphasis has been on stitch and material variations. We really haven't looked a lot at how these stitch variations and material choices can be applied in different ways to make a style of embroidery that is reflective of a particular culture.
And there is a lot out there on the internet about different ethnic traditions!
Here is a web site which has a lot to say about other countries and their traditions, especially those in the former SSRs...
And here is a comparison of blue-and-white embroidery techniques of two different cultures - rural China and the Amager Blue of Denmark:
