Crewel fabric is best known for its hand-embroidered details. This embroidery is made in Kashmir. The embroidery detail is therefore the most distinctive feature on this type of fabric. The history of this fabric type dates back to thousands of years ago. Its roots are linked to India, but there were also some traces of origin in Greece and Mongolia. Eventually, it reached its peak during the 17th century in England and during the Jacobean period. During this time, the fabric was used for wall hangings and bed drapery. The graphic and bold designs of the fabric depict wildlife, flower, or foliage.
