The history of Hungarian embroidery – like that of many other countries – stretches back thousands of years. As early as the 11th century there were schools for weaving and embroidery in Hungary. Women created embroideries for sale to supplement the family’s income. Today, although the practice of the art is declining, Hungarian embroideries, and the traditional motifs they showcase, remain an important expression of culture and you can find embroidered items in every tourist gift shop – and probably every home – in the country. Interestingly, Hungary boasts more than twenty different folkloric regions, each with their own motifs, which can vary widely.
