Embroideries are one of the landmarks of Viana do Castelo city, along with filigree. Embroidery motives are used in clothing and in tablecloths, inspired by flowers (roses, lilies, bell-flowers, camellias), leaves (ivy, clover), pets, symbols, geometrical elements, the most typical one being the heart. The threads are made of blue or red cotton, and the cloth is white or raw-coloured. Several stitches are used, such as ant, flower stem, chain, sieve, and backstitches. These embroideries are inspired by the old clothes of women rural population. They used to be executed in cotton and wool thread.
