Cut Work

At Tara we have beautiful Cutwork in our clothing and linen designs. It is a vintage technique which originated in Italy in the 14th century.

Designs created on natural fabric like cotton or linen are cut into motifs and the holes that are formed are embroidered with colourful yarn on the outline to reinforce the fabric and the design, thus creating gorgeous and intricate patterns. These designs are cutout by hand and then embroidered to create our beautiful dresses.
