Les Jours de Cilaos

Les jours de Cilaos,顾名思义,即来自Cilaos的抽纱绣。Cilaos是法属留尼旺岛上群山中的一个小镇。

Les jours de Cilaos, the drawn thread embroidery from Cilaos, is an old form of embroidery survived on the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. The warp and weft threads are removed from linen cloth. The edges of the resulting square holes are secured, new threads are stretched diagonally and decorated with a variety of patterns.
