The art of Rosetas, traditional embroidery
The creation of rosetas involves crossing thread along the work surface, the piqué, and subsequently, repeatedly attaching it to the diametrically opposed pins, filling in the entire circumference with a radial warp. Having completed this operation, a needle and thread are employed, which may or may not share the colour and quality of the thread used for the warp, to join the threads of the warp, tying them together or interweaving other threads around them, completing the weave until the roseta is finished and bears the desired design.
The rosetas are joined together directly or via linking rosetas.
Rosetas can be divided into two groups: primary rosetas, which appear in innumerable varieties (estrella, hojas, jazmín, margarita, etc), and smaller linking rosetas (cruz para unir, margaritas, burgaditos, etc), which are used to join the larger rosetas together.
