The design is inspired by the oldest form of embroidery – cross-stitch, which can be found all over the world but especially in Central Europe. Traditionally, cross-stitch was used to embellish items (tablecloths, traditional-style costumes, doilies etc.)
This design is also dedicated to the western capercaillie, cause people in Europe have been fascinated by this bird for centuries. It has been a fine hunting trophy for aristocrats. In the famous films starring Romy Schneider as young Empress Sissi she goes hunting with her father for a male western capercaillie. She manages to scare away the bird, which is a metaphor for the changes cause of growing to a woman (as a younger girl, this fine hunting trophy would have been really exciting for her) but now she emphasise with this bird.
