Gold Embroidery

Gold embroidery originated in Asia and has been used for many centuries and it is widespread in many countries. In Malta, there is a tradition that gold embroidery is used on religious artefacts and emblems of various societies prominent in different communities across the two islands. Today, there are a few highly skilled individuals spread throughout the Maltese Islands who still know, practice and (on a very small scale) teach this craft.
