150 years of history

The Madeira Embroidery is an embroidery typical of the archipelago of Madeira, Portugal. The fabrics used are linen, silk, cotton and organdy. The technique is used on tablecloths, dresses, shirts, sheets and wipes. The Madeira Embroidery factories are located in Funchal, but, traditionally, embroiderers embroider at home a bit throughout the island. The Madeira Embroidery is sold all over the world.
