Berlin Work Tote
Berlin Work Tote
Design by De Selby
In the early 19th century, newly discovered dyeing processes contributed to the development of Berlin wool work, which featured bright shades of vibrant colors. Traditional Berlin wool work began with black-and white patterns on grid paper that were affordable as single-sheet designs. The style found its way to Britain and then the U.S. in the middle of the 19th century. This delightful design brings back that classical style of Berlin work but in modern colors and style.

Dana Batho of Peacock & Fig
Q. When did you begin cross stitching?

A. I honestly don't remember. My mom taught me basic embroidery as a child, but she doesn't know how to cross stitch. I must have learned via a kit from our town's tiny craft store, and I picked it back up again four years ago.
