Brazilian embroidery is a type of dimensional surface embroidery. Brazilian embroidery does not necessarily come from Brazil, but is named such because the threads used are widely manufactured in Brazil. Instead of cotton or wool, the threads in Brazilian embroidery are 100% rayon, which are extracted from plants by hand and have a smooth and silky texture, much like velvet, making it appropriate for the dimensional stitches. It is this main characteristic that makes Brazilian embroidery famous and appreciated by many.

We are working on a major update to the way we store and ship our silk embroidery art. During this process, all of our artwork will display as "out of stock" on our website. We expect to have many of our unframed (soft-mounted) pieces available again for sale in June 2016. Framed artwork will continue to be unavailable or only available in limited quantities until further notice.
