There was a time when Mallorca was a strategic point for the shipping routes that crossed the Mediterranean. Then the embroidered maps began to be put in ships because they lasted longer than others made from traditional parchment, and this led to an increase in trade.
Today, embroidery is used to decorate clothes, blankets and curtains.
No matter what your taste, or what you want to use it for, you will find some Majorcan embroidery to suit you.
