For a long time, Madeira Embroidery has been one of the most important local products in the Archipelago of Madeira.
There is not a consensus regarding the appearance of Madeira Embroidery in Madeira Island, however we estimate that is has begun in the beginning of the 19th century, in 1850.
The person responsible for the great impulse of the Embroidery industry in Funchal city was Miss Phelps, daughter of a British businessman.
In the 20th century, Madeira Embroidery exported to several countries all over the world, namely Italy, Australia, the United States and South Africa. Thus, these countries became the most important markets.
The fabrics used in Madeira Embroidery are linen, organdie, cotton, natural silk and synthetic fibers.
