Saami Tenntråd

Saami tenntrådsbroderi – ancestral crafts in a modern age. Tenntrådsbroderi or Tin Thread embroidery was crafted by the Saami since the 1600’s. The pewter or tin thread was made by melting pewter plates and spinning the tin into yarn. The tin yarn was then used for embroidery to decorate trims for clothing, make jewellery and other items.
