The style of needle-point that developed in Marash (in Cilicia, south-eastern Turkey today) is a particularly recognisable tradition, although it is by far not the only regional variation of an Armenian art or craft. “Marash work” involves distinct patterns – with names ranging from the mundane (“cup”) to the more mystical (“flower of seven mountains”) – not infrequently echoing architectural motifs such as knotted engravings or crosses found elsewhere in the Armenian world. They often consist of stitches in blue or red over dark backgrounds, at times stringing in pearls or making use of gold or silver thread for particularly significant items.
