This season hardly anyone will be able to pass the so-called Broderie Anglaise. This type of fabric originates from Eastern Europe and became popular in the 16th century.
In principle, it is still a simple, rather crisp fabric made of linen or cotton into which certain floral or geometric patterns are stamped. In order to prevent fraying, the open edges are embroidered. In the past this was done by hand, today machines take over.
The fabric is called ‘Broderie Anglaise’ because this design was the latest fashion in 19th century England. The great demand led to the name.
Our Broderie Anglaise is classic creamy white and was made in Spain. The variation ‘Fleurine’ consists of floral elements.
