The square pattern that you can see in the picture was found in an old book and we named it after the inscription beneath the image of the design: Design for a linen damask napkin by Prof. C. Graft, Manufactured by Mr. J. Meyer in Dresden.

We can easily conclude that it is a square border design, probably intended to be embroidered on a napkin. It was drawn using several separate motifs, so if you know how to use 2D CAD or vector software, feel free to make a border of different dimensions from it, or even a design of a different shape if you happen to be creative enough. It should also be noted that the whole design consists of two separate border designs that can be quite easily separated and used independently from each other.

Here you can download only an unpainted version so that you can color it yourself as you see fit. Unfortunately, we did not find the information in the book about how this design had been originally painted, so we leave that process entirely up to your creativity. The design consists only of lines and circles forming closed surfaces and has axes of symmetry, so it is enough to draw only one-eighth of it, with which the whole design can be easily obtained. If you have a CNC embroidery machine and use some embroidery software, 2D CAD and vector file formats are available. If your software cannot import the formats offered, all you have to do is convert the design to a format that your software understands or create an image of the design with Inkscape software, for example, which you can then import into almost any embroidery software.
