A Study in Crimean Tatar Embroidery
The study focuses on a small collection of embroidered textiles, dating from the 1870s to 1920. It is intended to support the revival of the art of embroidery in Crimea by providing detailed description of each headscarf, decorated towel, sash and related item in the collection. Embroidery motifs and their meanings are also examined.
