Blackwork sleeves. Spanish technique of fancywork, 17th-18th century. Catherine of Aragon was a talented artist in fancywork and a perfect sewer. Even after a scandalous divorce with her, Henry XVIII claimed the shirts sewed by Catherine. That was a constant subject of argues between him and Anna Boleyn.

Unusual Antique Tibetan Pilgrims Cap lavishly encrusted with natural Turquoise nuggets, agate, and horn beads was handcrafted approximately 100 years ago in the Tibetan Autonomous Region (Xizang). The crown on this unique cap is made of old embroidered textile, with a swinging top-knot that is embellished with natural Turquoise and cowrie shells. When not being worn, these caps were carried by their top-knots, which often had to be replaced when they broke or wore through.
