160,00 incl. VAT

Hand stiched pillow from the northwestern region of Transsilvania, Kalotaszeg. The region is famous for their beautifully enriched art. One of the most famous composer of our time is Belá Bartók whose collection can be admired at the ethnological museum in Budapest. The stichings from Kalotaszeg are monochrom, usually in red, white and blue. In particular the densely stiched ornamental floral designs in geometrical order and the love for geomatrical designs demonstrate the strong influence of Rumanian art. The lovely ladies of Kalotaszeg, who still master the art of stiching at their homes also like the more playful motives of Hungarian designs. However the motives are drawn first and then stiched on the handwoven linen.
