Colcha Embroidery


Colcha is a type of embroidery that utilizes a long stitch couched down with angled cross stitches on a flat woven textile backing in linear or overall designs. Typical designs include flora, fauna, and Christian devotional images. The tradition has evolved from bed coverlets and table/altar runners to clothing, pillow covers, and Christmas ornaments.
