Kashubian embroidery varies depending on the part of the Kashubian region it comes from. The Wdzydze school is characterized by a different style from the one in Kartuzy or Wejherowo. Still these are not the only schools that exist within Kashubia. Possibly the most characteristic one is the Żukowo School of Kashubian Embroidery. Żukowo is a town situated in the Kartuzy county. As a rule always 7 colors are used to make a flower embroidery: three shades of blue, yellow, red and black. The choice of flowers varies. Below you can see a variety of flower representations that can appear on pottery or embroidery from the region. It is surely worth buying one of these hand-made beauties. Let me suggest you to visit a small workshop on the Carthusian church grounds where a very nice lady not only sold, but also explained to us the differences between different varieties of Kashubian embroideries.
