Embroideries

Wheat Straw Embroidery

As if they were gold threads, wheat or rye straw are crafted by the genius of the women of Faial over white or black tulle. The predominant decorative element is the ear of the wheat, although other vegetal elements are part of the exquisite pieces connected to women’s fashion, such as ceremony dresses, veils, kerchiefs and purses.
