In North Estonia, flower pattern was dominant in the first half of the 19th century.It seems strange how colourful, manifold and rich is the art of embroidery in the small territory of Estonia. A good example is the Jõelähtme sleeve pattern used on North Estonian scarf – its pattern is peculiar and diverse.Wrap was being worn lengthways on one’s back; the corners were secured on the breast with a brooch or yarn. The tradition of wearing wraps remained until the beginning of the 19th century.
