What is Hövej Embroidery?
According to a Hungarian website, the Embroidery of Hövej became world-famous in 1962 at the Expo of Brussels. It describes the embroidery as being “full of holes” and made on “flimsy material.” The holes are then filled with different knitting patterns. This embroidery is used to adorn blouses, aprons, handkerchiefs, tablecloths, bed-covers, and altar-cloths.
