More about this digital file


Whitework is an intrinsic part of the embroidery tradition of many countries and in Sardinia it appears as a superbly simple technique known as Punt'e Nù or knot stitch.

This handy blue and white book weight is designed to keep pages open and is decorated on each side with a traditional motif of stylised cockerels.

The richly textured embroidery is created with a single stitch primarily worked diagonally across the fabric weave, giving the work a charming and distinctive appearance.
