What are the different kinds of Philippine embroidery?
* Calado (piercing) is a method of decorating a textile by
pulling out threads from certain areas, reinforcing other areas and
sewing them together to make intricate lacy designs.
* Sombrado is a method in which curvilinear patterns are appliquéd to thin cloth to make silhouette designs.
An embroidery stitch is one of the many different styles of stitches that are used to decorate a fabric. Some embroidery is used to trim items of clothing, and sometimes an entire surface of fabric, such as a blanket, is covered by embroidery. The main difference between sewing and embroidery is that embroidery is used for decorations, and sewing is used to join pieces together.
