Interlocking Knot Embroidery in Satin Stitches

This beautiful silk panel is one I made for a couple of custom pillow fronts. The pattern is a traditional Interlocking Knot pattern - very often used in printing, tile work and inlay in wooden floors. A good friend of mine, Erika Glazer, has this design on her hardwood floors which are original to her house in the late 1920's.

The pattern is strong, straightforward and would make a great ottoman top and or chair back. It is a nice traditional touch which can be very masculine or feminine depending on the colors used and the ground fabric.
