Story of the Bridge in Venice design
This hand embroidery design of Bridge in Venice, is the dream for all Italy lovers. With each stitch it feels as if you get to travel to this idyllic location. Venice is situated on a group of 118 small islands, which are all linked by over 400 bridges. Due to all of the surrounding water, the idyllic town is severely threatened by the global warming. Thus, to be able to capture part of its beauty in an embroidered art work, is gift to treasure forever.
Hand embroidery designs of architecture and sceneries around us, can truly build connections between you and the site. Whether it is a place you’ve been or a place you dream to go, to turn the location into an embroidered art piece is incredible. This is only one of the reasons why we are so in love with this style of free hand embroidery. Additionally it’s also why we’ve dedicated our hand embroidery patterns to the beauty of our world.
