When we mention art we have to mention Celtic art in the same verse. Creativity, embroidery, patterns, designs and poetry and myths are some attributes synonymous with Celts. Celts were born warriors and amazing tribes too. Celts left their footmarks all over Europe mainly because they were nomadic at heart and nature.

If we read or learn our history well we will find that there hasn't been a tribe that is more famous warring futility. That their art is still alive is proof enough of their longevity. Another prime example of this is that we still have myths, metal cravings, knot works; body works are art designs to remind us.

They were purely nomads can be understood by the fact that they occupied areas from Britain, Ireland, Spain, to places like Italy, Turkey and Bohemia. That's the plain ground why we find that French, Spanish, English, Irish and Italians predominantly have Celtic design in their needlework, tattoos, drapery as well as jewellery.

Cross stitch pattern is a rather plain yet elegant style of creating embroidery. Now we know that Celtic cross stitch is an old pattern yet it is as popular as it was in prehistoric times. The cross stitch pattern is widely common while being the most treasured form as well.

What we would like is the deep colors and bright ones mixed thus giving splendor of color embodied with designs that make the final result a visual treat second to none. The main essence of celtic cross stitch patterns is classically over cut designs with geometrical patterns, spiral, interweaving patterns, knot mechanism, animal forms, alphabets along with zoomorphic patterns.
