FAQ – 14th century embroidery & medieval inspiration

Racaire - Klosterstich - medieval embroidery

During the past years I was often asked for the medieval inspiration for the Klosterstich embroidery which you can see at the picture above. And I have not only embroidered this lovely theme – I also already used it for a hand painted mug and a hand painted box…
And, well, I might even use it again in the future because I love it so much… 🙂

Though the rest of my wallhanging was inspired by the 14th century “Weiberlistenteppich”/”Maltererteppich”, this particular section was inspired by one of the pages of the beautiful Codex Manesse. Please feel free to follow the link underneath and get inspired yourself! 😀

14th century Codex Manesse inspired embroidery

Inspiration: “Große Heidelberger Liederhandschrift”
Time: ca. 1300 – 1340
From: Germany
– find the whole Codex online:  Große Heidelberger Liederhandschrift (Codex Manesse)

…and in case you might need this link in the future, I just created a new page accessible via the Premium menu item in the header menu: “14th century embroidery & period inspiration

I am very looking forward to add more useful sources of medieval inspiration soon. And don’t forget the most important thing – get inspired and enjoy your embroidery projects! 😀
