Home decoration

The Dubrovnik area embroidery dates back to the 10th century when the wives of seamen spent their leisure time doing embroidery and in this way created beautiful designs for clothing and as home decorations. 

The tradition of embroidery has been preserved until the present time in the making of tablecloths, tea cloths, coasters and other items used in home decorating, the motifs depending on the type of material used, the intricacy of the embroidery and what the items can be used for. 
 
The Konavle embroidery is well known for is colourfulness, geometric motifs and the sophisticated effect created by the silk threads used, as well as for the superb flawless handicraft. Nowadays, the most common threads used for embroidery are cotton threads on a polyester and cotton base. 
 
As opposed to the Konavle embroidery, the Mljet embroidery uses exclusively cotton fabrics and cotton or silk threads and the characteristic motifs are flowers and leaves of different shapes of free design.
