When I moved in USA, I was surprised to discover that the art of gobelin tapestry
embroidery is completely unknown here. Even there is not a separate name for it -
somebody thinks it's a cross-stitch, somebody calls it needlepoint. Even when I needed
some more fabric for one of my project, I asked in about 15 stores, and nobody knew
the exact name of it. I had chance to meet a very old lady, who was stitching more
than 50 years, and she said me that the fabric I use cannot be found in USA, but I can
replace it with a plain Hardanger fabric. The other possibility I could use was to order
the fabric from Europe.
Part of the tapestries I have made are embroidered according the world's most famous
Wiehler tapestries, part are designed from a new and very talented Bulgarian
designer, Stoyanka Ivanova (owner of the firm Solaria) and the rest of them is my
own design. I can also make tapestries from your own custom design.
I would like make them available to people who would be interested to have them as
home decoration, or to offer a precious gift to a relative, friend or business partner.
All the tapestries are made on fine cotton fabric with DMC threads, framed with nice
frames, selected carefully for every one, and will become treasured heirlooms.
I offer here some of the pictures of the tapestries I have previously made. If you are
interested, please contact me.
