Arrasene, or Arasene embroidery, is a form of chenille embroidery, which was popular in the late nineteenth century and used for curtain borders, mantelpiece borders or screens, at places where the fine Arrasene material was unlikely to get damaged. Arrasene embroidery is known to have been worked in tent stitch on canvas, or in stem stitch or crewel stitch on velvet or serge, or with couching as braid work.
