In the tale of the Arabian Nights, the flowers of the Orient - rose, tulip, carnation and hyacinth - tell us in a few pages of the splendor of the Ottoman Empire and the refinement and delicacy of its art.

This book presents embroideries full of charm and color adapted to the taste of the day. Accompanied by diagrams and photographs, the explanations are clear, detailed and accessible.

This collection, Sur le motif, invites us to discover, through a cultural and practical approach, decorative themes which, based on objects or fabrics, have marked a civilization, a country or a period.
