 In South Estonia the embroidery was rather modest. Using yarns of different colours, white, brown, red, green, blue i.e. became more common. Colourful stripes woven in the fabric and combinations of stitches were the main ways to decorate the shawls.
South Estonian shawl has been inspired by the pattern of the Tartu folk costume shirt. Tartu shawl has been decorated with an eight-branch star that is surrounded with zigzag line consisting of squares.
