Avlea Cypress Grove Kit

Regular price

Sale price

The cypress design has its origins from a traditional scarf in  a bride’s trousseau from the Greek islands and beautifully illustrates how historic motifs were incorporated into folk embroidery. Cypress trees originally were motifs of death and mourning, but later came to symbolize immortality and eternal life. They are frequently seen in many forms of ancient art from the Mediterranean world. This elegant runner is worked in the original palette of warm red, green, and old gold. Kit includes 26 ct ground cloth imported from Greece and DMC. Finishes to 17” x 24”.
