the tulle-bi-telli is a traditional metal thread embroidery that weaves grace and elegance together. Born in the Upper Egyptian city Assiut, the beautiful textile marries cotton or linen mesh with small strips of metal. The textile is rendered using a variety of stitches, resulting in highly textured designs with beautiful Egyptian patterns.
The concept of metal embroidery dates back to ancient Egypt . Vintage, Dance, Retro, Burlesque, Katrina, Dan, Danza, Hijab, Traditional Outfits
