Techniques of Armenian Interlace — Ethnic Textile Art by Phyllis Maurer


Armenian Interlacing is a stitch that has been seen in many cultures and called by many different names. This stitch reflects the wide dispersal of the Armenian peoples and speaks to the resilience of their culture. I choose to call this stitch “Armenian Interlacing” because, in the source material I used, the most explicit examples were created by Armenian women. The complexity of the stitched examples shown in these sources, as well as the sheer number of shapes and lines shown indicates an in-depth understanding and exploration of this technique by these Armenian women.
