Nottingham Contemporary Jacquard Throw

Jacquard Throw.
Top photograph shows the fabric being woven on the loom.
The next photographs show the hand embroidery done after the fabric left the loom. The stitch used was chain stitch and the throw took 70 hours work to finish after being woven.

The throw has 174 feet of chain stitch at approx 12 stitches per inch, which means it consists of approx 25,056 stitches of embroidery!
