Rectangular tablecloth hand embroidered by the mistress of Kashub embroidery – her works were rewarded in competitions many times and are presented in regional art museums. This table cloth poses a perfect example of less universal, but extremely subtle variant of Kashubian embroidery – so called Borowiacka school of Kashubian embroidery – here traditional kashubic colours were replaced with colour tones of gold, amber and brown.

This tablecloth distinguishes with its unusually rich embroidery – its precision delights both connoisseurs and people who do not know secrets of the art of embroidery.

It is well worth to pay special attention to the unusual variety of embroidered elements – small and big tulips, roses, forget-me-nots, cornflowers and sunflowers connected with branches embroidered in meticulous way and with other decorative elements. Central part of table cloth is filled with embroidered ornament – embroidery surrounds also its edges. Preparation of such compact embroidered ornament takes even half of a year of work. Edges of table cloth are finished with delicate hemstitch.

We would like to recommend this product especially collectors of handicraft, designers and connoisseurs of the art of embroidery.

Kashubian embroidery is inspired by the beauty of nature. Flower motives are the most characteristic: pansies, cornflower, blue-bells, carnations, lillies, forget-me-nots and roses. They are presented with unusual precision and attention to detail. In Kashubian embroidery every colour has its symbolic meaning. There are seven basic colours connected with the legend of the creation of Kashubia. The colours symbolize the elements of nature, that God used to make Kashubian land beautiful while creating it.



There are various schools of Kashubian embroidery using different characteristic motives and colour schemes. The oldest is Zukow school of Kashubian embroidery. The name comes from the Norbertinian convent in Zukow, where the style was developed. The popular motives include tulip, clover, rosette and heart (filled with a checkered pattern); seven characteristic kashubian colours are used. The most atypical embroidery schools are Tuchola and Borowiec ones: instead of using the seven traditional colours, they use the shades of gold and amber (Tuchola) and gold and brown (Borowiec). Wejherowo embroidery may be recognized by the dominance of red and yellow and characteristic motives of dahlia, chryzanthemum, lilac leaves and cowberry.

 

• cornflower blue symbolizes the beautiful Kashubian lakes,

• blue is the colour of Kashubian sky,

• dark blue is like the unmeasurable depth of sea,

• yellow reflects the colour of cereals ripening in fields and the sun,

• green stands for forests full of game,

• red is like blood that every Kashubian is ready to spill for protection of their land,

• brown and black are like soil ready for being planted.

 

Read the legend

 

The nuns from Zarnowiec in their school of embroidery, so called Puck school, use several shades of blue. They introduced into Kashubian embroidery styled elements of sea holly, nets and waves. Coif (headpiece) embroidery is an interesting variety, that used to be done with gold and silver threads on velvet. It decorated coifs, that is where it name comes from, but also waistcoats. Today it decorates doilies and tablecloths and it is made with white or yellow thread.
