White on White - Textile Decoration Techniques

December 1th, 2018 – March 1th, 2019,  Muzeul Textilelor, Art Cafe, Building B, Băița, Hunedoara.

The White on White exhibition brings to the public textile objects made during the period following the industrial revolution, especially in the city, but also in the rural areas of Europe and the United States. The bleached fabric made of linen, hemp and cotton were the mainly used materials for the household textiles included in this exhibition—tablcloths, napkins and bed linens. The mecanic weaving produced wide fabric, necessary for these objects, therefore, the techniques previously used for joint the norrow width of the hand made fabric were no longer used. The cut work embroidery, which in Romania it is also called „broderie  spartă,” drawn thread work, various types of lace and insertions are some of the most important white on white decoration technique. During the end of the nineteen cntury and the first half of the twentieth century these thechniques spread rapidly throughout Europe and the United States. They changed the preferences for the textiles for interiors, and provoked radical transformations especially in the group of textiles produced until then in the rural areas, with traditional materials and technologies.
