In Muhu, unlike many other places, wrap and plaid were distinguished – wrap was bigger. Plaid was also being worn across one’s shoulders in this area. Embroidering of plaids was started before the I World War. These plaids were made by professional embroiderers. Embroidery of Muhu is peculiar and characteristic of the people of Muhu Island. The embroidery is divided into two major groups: geometric and plant pattern.The most typical, most used and the oldest geometric pattern motif is closed into an orderly octagon. This motif, that was called Muhu Whisk and was believed to be a sign of luck and rebirth, was often used on woollen plaids.You can see the whisk pattern motif on MUHU scarf.
