"Írásos, 'written' embroidery, a true expression of Kalotaszeg and Transylvanian culture . . .  Wall hangings were produced to commemorate ceremonies. . .  Girls would sew their dowries -- pillows, sheets, and bedspreads, as well as elaborately decorated dresses that included ribbons and beadwork. . . Tulips, flowers, stems, leaves, lines, and circles form patterns nearly covering portions of the fabric . . .Renaissance or Turkish motifs."  http://threadwrittentextiles.com/the-tradition/
