Igolochky is a form of punch needle embroidery from Russia. This type of work has traditionally been used to decorate household furnishings, especially curtains, and in some parts of Russia it can be found on regional dress, such as women’s blouses. This technique has also been used to make religious icons that are normally hung at home.

The punch needle that is being used is called an igolochka.
