The Dior of Thread Work

 

The tablecloths in this category, have almost the same level as tablecloths of the category of the Rolex thread work. Tablecloths of great detail, where some like the Culantrillo tablecloth has taken up to 12 months to complete. Although at first we said that one of the factors that we would use to classify each tablecloth Dni thread work would be the processing time among others, we have to say, that has been taken into account, more the beauty of detail and complexity, at the time of classifying them.

For us, these thread works have the same position that Dior has in fashion, that’s to say if Dior is among the top 10 brands and fashion products in the world, these tablecloths are positioned in the same way in the thread work of the Casa de los Balcones.
