Stelle e Bordure a Reticello
The intense activity of the Laboratory and the School of Giuliana Bonpadre gets real in this collection of embroidery manuals entitled "Gli Antichi" (stitches and embroidery), whoses writing and illustrations started from the year 2004. These books have been re-printed and updated later on not only to share knowledge and techniques, but also to preserve he memory of a treasure which always allows to embroiderers to be in contact with the "real beauty". This album contains a huge selection of stars made in Reticello all combined with borders so that designs and motifs are close to each other, in a sort of unique symmetry. The stars are among the main motifs which have characterized the reticello embroidery.
