During the late Ottoman period, in Turkey, embroidery was carried out on a number of levels. Kasnak isi (tambour work) takes its name from the frame it was embroidered upon. This technique is based exclusively on a chain stitch. Floor-spreads, barber robes, and prayer cloths were produced using this technique.
