All about Broderie Anglaise
Broderie anglaise – French for ‘English embroidery’ – is the method that most likely originated in Czechoslovakia during the sixteenth century, but remains associated with England because of its popularity there during the 19th century. Is characterised by round or oval patterned cut-outs in a fabric, giving a delicate, lacy effect (although not as delicate as lace itself). The shapes these holes create often takes inspiration from nature, such as flowers and leaves, with open areas of fabric of varying sizes.
