This thick embroidery on linen, also known as "Queen Leonor" embroidery (one of the occupations of the queen) has a filigreed appearance, similar to Indian embroidery. The designs used are spirals, spiders and hearts, while the colours are blue, brown, the colour of honey or cinnamon. In times past, these embroideries were sold at the door of the Caldas da Rainha Hospital, but nowadays it is hard to find these kinds of handicrafts.
