RIOLIS #1703 Assisi embroidery
Posted on: 2019-02-10

The ancient city in the center of Italy at the slope of Monte Subasio keeps many secrets and traditions. Since ancient times people know about this place. In the Middle Ages, in the XIII century, the construction of a monastery in honor of St. Francis of Assisi began in the city. Famous artist Giotto decorated the walls inside the cathedral with his paintings. According to legend, after the end of construction, one nun copied his frescoes, simplifying plots with primitive lines. And then, in her simple drawings, they created an embroidery with the faces of saints. According to another version, St. Francis brought fabric with Arabic embroidery from the Crusade, and Italian craftswomen tried to repeat the oriental ornaments on the patterns. 
By the way, the name of Assisi embroidery received several centuries later, when people decided to revive the skill of local embroidery. 
The main feature of this type of embroidery is the use of stitches along the perimeter of the pattern. So while the background is filled with stitches, the pattern itself is obtained from a non-sewn space. 
RIOLIS continues to acquaint needlewomen with various techniques. We offer you the needlework kit 1703 Sea Horse. Here, an exquisite turquoise color fills the background, and luxurious sea and floral patterns appear in a result. Stitches frame the contour. Only three colors of Anchor threads are used on the canvas of 18 counts of Aida Zweigart in this work. 
You can arrange the work as a panel and as a table topper - our embroidery women as always could choose. ;) 

Needlework anti-stress kits Embroidery therapy from RIOLIS
Posted on: 2017-03-16
RIOLIS Anti stress therapy Lovely Flower RIOLIS Anti stress therapy Magic Feather  Magic Feather Bird of Luck
The idea
It started with adult coloring books. This simple activity has been reopened. It turned out that it is the best help in the solution of an important problem, which almost every adult confronts - struggling with stress. As you know, you can deal with stress in different ways. Creativity is not only one of the most valuable, but also one of the most effective ways. Checked!
One of the first adult colorings were performed in Zen art style, which itself involves a kind of creative meditation. RIOLIS decided to follow the exact direction. The bases of the designs were formed by Ekaterina Arkhipova who made her sketches in Zen art style.
RIOLIS offers a new version of anti-stress work. Embroiderers try to apply their skills in a new direction, and those who are accustomed to the traditional coloring, can try to discover new sides and highlight sketches with stitches.
Needlework kits Embroidery therapy give you not only the freedom of creativity, but also the opportunity to choose a degree of freedom itself.
Beginners among needlewomen or those who want to fully relax with embroidery will like the ability to make the work in strict accordance with the cover. The kits will suit experienced needlewomen.
The needlework kit contains
For needlewomen new series schemes seem a little bit unusual, as traditionally they help to make the work in accordance with the picture shown on the cover. Notational conventions look unusual and refer to the encyclopedia of stitches, also placed in the booklet. If you decide to bring your own ideas, the lines marked on the canvas will help you. They will serve as a reference point in your work.
The most interesting thing is that regardless of whether you are embroidering according to the scheme or not, the work will turn out unique! While preparing kits for release, we have embroidered it several times, and we can say that it is impossible to practically make the same picture two times.
The needlework kit has as usually all the necessary materials to make a picture as it is on the cover: wool/acrylic yarn Safil, even weaven fabric manufactured in Europe with printed pattern and a suitable needle. In order to create your own version of the designs use beads, rhinestones, buttons and threads from the remnants of other RIOLIS kits!
Enjoy your creativity!

RIOLIS Foxgloves
Perhaps, you don’t even know such flower – foxglove. Meanwhile, this plant not only looks effective as an embroidery, but also is very health-giving and exhausting. It was used as a curative in ancient times. Long time the substance, secreted from foxglove, was indispensable for treatment of cardiac failure. 
One more interesting fact is that Vincent Van Gogh had taken this medicine by prescription in his later years. There is a theory that this circumstance influenced artist’s color perception and gave an unusual palette of his paintings to the world.
The size of the embroidery was chosen uncommon for extraordinary flower – 19x90 cm. Design is not standard either. The kit has everything you need to stitch and enframe the work as shown on the cover: two wooden hangers and a detailed explanation of edge processing technology in instruction.
Embroidery is done by several kinds of half-wool threads Safil stitch on black canvas 14 ct Aida Zweigart. Especially, it is mentioned that the work also implies the use of combined stitches. The color chart is shown enlarged on three sheets. Traditionally, needle is also included in the kit.

RT-0050 Cross-stitch with poppies and peonies Oriental Bouquet
Posted on: 2016-10-16
According to Feng Shui tradition peonies and poppies are considered to be kings of plants and flowers in the Eastern cultures. It's hard to argue with this idea when you witness the beauty of the cross-stitch kit with a pre-printed background 0050 PT Oriental Bouquet. Keeping such plants in one's house is said to bring well-being in many areas of life. Of course you can't grow peopies or poppies in an apartment, but you can embroider those magnificent flowers to the benefit of your household.
Bright and rich color of poppies associates with passion and love.
By the eastern tradition, which pays immense respect to this flower, peony helps not only find your true romantic love, but also mend complicated relationships between spouses, parents and children, brothers and sisters. Sometimes a person feel that precious connection with their loved ones is lost forever. Bright color of these magical flowers like a fiery impulse will help find way to the loved one's heart.
Also Oriental Bouquet cross-stitch kit  holds all the pleasant blessings for girls and brides. Poppies are said to conceive a child. There is a belief in the embroidery community that a girl who starts cross-stitching a poppy picture, will soon be with a child.  In China poppies were symbols of a good wedding and a happy life for newlyweds. So this embroidery can also be used as a great wedding present!
Please note that cross-stitch kit 0050 PT Oriental Bouquet contains a piece of fabric with a pre-printed background. Semi-transparent outline of mountains and the background rows of leaves are already printed on the fabric with manufacturer's own equipment, so RIOLIS guarantees the quality of the print. An embroidery on such a fabric (14 ct Aida Zweigart) appears more volumnous and expressive, though the actual techniques used in the kit are pretty easy: a 3-thread cross-stitch and an ordinary 1-thread stitch. The design uses 17 colors of Anchor-stranded mouline threads (including color blends). A detailed instruction will help with this unusual fabric or explain all the nuances of embroidery to a novice in the needlework world.

Coming soon! Cross stitch kit 1549 Owner of the Jungle
Posted on: 2015-11-10


The leopard species is spread around the world wider than any other cat, except of course domestic cats. His soft and powerful paws silently step in savannas of Africa, mountains of the Caucasus and forest in Asia either. Deserts, rocks and the woods - he is home everywhere. A leopard is a natural-born hunter. He has always been respected and feared.



Do you remember Kipling's fairy tale "How the Leopard Got His Spots"? "In the days when everybody started fair" there were only two hunters: the Leopard and the Ethiopian. They hunted giraffes, antelopes and zebras together. And it was a smarter one - a human - who had made the well-known spots on the skin of his colleague with his dark fingers. Thanks to these spots the skin turns into a real camouflage. The color reminds the picturesque spots of light that are making their way through dense foliage of the jungle and helps to become almost invisible in dense thickets.
The leopard is in the Red List. It is a rare case for a brave traveler to meet this dangerous but gorgeous predator today. But all the needlework fans can afford a magnificent exotic pleasure - a leopard embroidery.
The leopard appears on many coats of arms. In heraldry this animal is a symbol of bravery, force, activity and agility. Cross stitch kit 1549 Owner of the Jungle will help you to create with your own hands a house patron and defender. You are working on this design, right? Thank you.

The embroidery is made with Anchor stranded cotton threads on a colored 14 ct Aida Zweigart fabric. A magnificent skin, rich colors of tropical flora, lights and shadows are transferred by various stitch types: 3-, 2- and 1-strand cross stitch, 3- and 2-strand half cross stitch and a stitch. The fabric is not stitched up completely. The approximate finished size is 30х40 cm.

Woolen/Acrylic Threads from RIOLIS are available now
Posted on: 2012-10-24


We glad to announce that Woolen/Acrylic Threads from RIOLIS are available now.


Most of Cross Stitch Kits created by RIOLIS contain woolen/acrylic threads.
Woolen/acrylic threads are very smooth to the touch. It is easy to stitch even if you are inexperienced in such kind of handiwork, and stitches lay tight giving soft and matte surface.
The whole palette of dark colors of woolen/acrylic threads is very deep and saturated. So there are some designs like animals, landscapes which look more attractive, vivid and very close to the original.
Woolen/acrylic threads as opposed to stranded cotton perfectly suits for working on 11 and below count fabric, so weak sight people as well as kids can also enjoy cross-stitching.
RIOLIS woolen/acrylic threads are more resistible to abrasion, better preserve the color and less allergenic.
