This lavish three border design is thought to have originated in Byzantine times and is the original design that our popular Design 201 is based upon. Featuring only two colors (your choice of either a blue or red colorway), the outlining of the lighter color provides intricacy and contrast. A stunning piece of textile history, this design will become a treasured heirloom and would be wonderful to give as a wedding gift.
Finished size is 14 x 27 inches (embroidered area is 13 x 36 inches/180 x 360 sts).
