The "Thrace" floral pattern draws its inspiration from traditional tsevres. Tsevres (Greek plural: tsevredes) are embroideries of unique aesthetics and craftswomanship, featuring colorful floral motifs and created by Greek women of Eastern Thrace and Asia Minor. The natural world provided the main theme for these pieces of needlework (branches, leaves from various trees, flowers, grapes, vine leaves etc.). Tsevredes were used for decorating walls and pieces of furniture alike. They were frequently offered up as wedding presents and considered an integral part of every Thracian home.
The Asian Minor and the Trace embroidery typifies a rare form of the traditional art of embroidery whose origins can be traced back to the Byzantine Period.Also it represents the vernacular aesthetics of a whole area and era of Greek civilisation.
