The combination of counted-thread and pulled stitches in these fine linen textiles is referred to as Opus Teutonicum, or German whitework. It appears especially in southern Germany in the 13th and 14th centuries. These textiles are complex and fascinating, though difficult to photograph because of the lack of color. Some of the best examples are in Schuette and Christensen’s Pictorial History of Embroidery.
