The vivid green fabric used to make this coat acts as a beautiful background for the colourful embroidery with bouquets of grasses, ears of grain and delicate wild flowers as the main motif. L'art du brodeur by Charles Germain de Saint-Aubin (1721–1786) is a genuine treasury of information on 18th century embroidery. In it the author described the techniques and stitches of the day, tools and materials, and also included popular pattern templates.
