Hand embroidered table-linen – rectangular table cloth and 8 serviettes. Kashub embroidery – the pearl of the North Region. The leading motif of embroidered pattern is a tulip, that recurs on serviettes. Rich floral pattern was embroidered at the central part of the tablecloth – in this pattern we can find motifs typical for Kashub embroidery: tulips, roses, sunflowers, cherries and other ornaments. It is well worth to pay special attention to the shading of embroidered branches and stems – an embroiderer achieved an interesting effect owing to the application of this kind of shading. Edges of table cloth are finished with delicate hemstitch. Each of the serviettes is embroidered with floral element coherent with table cloth motif and is finished with hemstitch too. Owing to the bigger than standard size of the serviettes, they are more comfortable in use. The embroidery used on the table-linen and the serviettes  is a combination of a traditional Wejherowo and Żuków school being a part of Kashubian embroidery using 7 colors (three shades of blue, green, yellow, red and black). This kind of embroidery is extremely labour-intensive – preparation of table-linen of this size takes about one month of work. Table-linen decorated in such beautiful way will add splendour to each important celebration, it may pose also perfect wedding gift.

Upon your request we will enclose an occasional card from our collection of hand-made postcards and we will write whishes.

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.
