    By the sixteenth century, embroidery had become a highly developed art form in England and on the Continent. The proliferation of printed materials, particularly books of embroidery designs, provided a wealth of motifs for both the amateur and professional embroiderer. The superb workmanship found in this early seventeenth-century mule suggests professional design and manufacture.
