Metal Thread Embroidery

Metal thread embroidery is a form of decorative needlework that uses one or more different types of metal thread. This type of work is much more expensive than using ‘normal’ threads, such as linen, silk or wool, and as a result is associated with status and wealth, whether it is secular or religious in nature.
