Baskets and Flowerpots
In Schwalm whitework borders, the heart often used as a base for the triple shoot, was sometimes replaced with a basket or a flowerpot. But there are also designs where baskets or flowerpots stand alone. The variety of shapes is great, the range of design options even greater. Initially, the motifs were closely embedded in the surrounding embroidery, but over the centuries they have become more clearly delineated and emphasized.
