ILOEMA pieces are created through artisanal embroidery techniques
Double-sided embroidery with drawings of geometric motifs executed on the reverse.

This embroidery uses a wide variety of metal threads including gilt copper and silver and can be combined with other techniques such as silk shading to produce sumptuous effects.
