An excerpt:

''Hardanger embroidery takes its name from the district of Hardanger surrounding the fiord of the same name in western Norway. Although usually classified as Norwegian embroidery, the work in its original form is very old, as long ago in Persia and other Asiatic countries it was worked in colored silks on a very fine gauze netting...

...The work is easily done and is not trying to the eyes or nerves... ''
