Chinese tin embroidery. It is a very special embroidery technique when long pieces of metal (tin foil) are used instead of threads. The craftswomen make the tin foil by themselves – they melt the tin and pour it onto the flat state to make tinplates. After that, the tinplate is cut into strips 1mm wide, right before it is used as a thread.

To read more about this embroidery technique you can here: Chinese ancient craft of tin embroidery – Miao embroidery (http://nationalclothing.org/asia/39-chi ... idery.html)

The oldest embroidery patterns, ornaments, and stitches used at the territory of modern Ukraine. Some of these stitches originate from the Cucuteni-Trypillia culture (5500-2750 B.C.) and the Bronze Age (3200-600 B.C. in Europe). They are reconstructed samples. A lot of these designs are still a part of Ukrainian traditional embroidery culture.
These samples are displayed in Reshetylivka museum, Poltava region, Central Ukraine.
