The origin of the embroideries of Viana do Castelo plunge into the rural villages of the county, where were found embroideries in cotton and wool thread used on rural female costumes. The motives and techniques used in the costumes confection have been shaping the embroideries of Viana, turned it into a commercial product and in a unique embroidery.
These embroideries are worked on three types of fabric: homemade linen, fine linen and cotton, embroidered in blue, white and red cotton thread. Embroiderers from Minho draw their compositions with admirable artistic intuition, inspired in natural motives symmetrically arranged. Floral arrangements are predominant, like camellias and hearts among other motives.
