The art of needlepoint is a skill, long vanished in the UK that is dying out worldwide. Craftsmen in China are retiring and factories are closing, as the economy moves from manufacture to service. In a few years, hand-crafted needlepoint will disappear, the art lost for all time. Their increasing scarcity makes them highly collectible, destined to become the irreplaceable antiques of the future. Chelsea Textiles’ meticulous research and use of authentic materials and colours, their unparalleled attention to detail and hand-crafting, all combine to produce items of unique excellence.
