  • Instructions

A gift started it all. Last summer, a lady offered me her inherited pillowcases with Transylvanian patterns. Of course I accepted the offer. After a short time, a package with several pillowcases and an embroidered blanket arrived. Everything was embroidered with thick russet, brown, and blue wool on very coarse linen. At first it didn't look anything like the patterns my heart had been beating for. But I kept looking at the samples and soon the spark jumped over. The patterns look so authentic and a bit archaic.
After a few pillowcases, which I enthusiastically embroidered, a book with Transylvanian patterns found me, which I liked more and more. What would happen if they were not embroidered in strong red or brown, but in delicate colors on fine linen? - This is how Transylvania 1 came into being.
The cloth contains 7 shades, 3 in shades of grey, 4 in shades of pink and red.

alternatively my favorite color combination:
Cream, beige and golden brown tones with shades of grey.

Design: Ute Scheer
