Ñanduti is a fine traditional Paraguayan embroidered lace. Artisans skillfully make this piece of art by hand, creating patterns that resemble various wild flowers, animals and other shapes inspired by nature.
Ñanduti is made on a stretched piece of fabric attached to a wooden frame. Artisans begin their work with a spoke-like structure of foundation threads upon which many patterns are carefully embroidered. The original structure looks like a spider web, which in Paraguay’s native language (Guarani) translates to Ñanduti.
*Thin thread Ñanduti is more rare to find nowadays due to the more intricate and delicate nature of the needlework and material.
