WOW! An example and detail of beetlewing embroidery made in the 1880s in the Hobart School for Mussulman Girls in Madras, India. The design is stitched in gold thread on black muslin net. The wing cases are from Jewel Beetles which shed them naturally throughout their lives. Clothing and accessories containing beetlewing embroidery became extremely fashionable during the Victorian period.
