I'm beginning to see the genius of this technique. Imagine trompe l'oeil beading, embroidery, and jewel-embellishments. Lower cost of production and also machine wash-and-dryable.
If you look at the post two dates ago, you will see some textiles with motifs of a possible Russian / European origin which could be adapted with this trompe l'oeil technique. In fact, one of the textiles - the Richloom Lucy in Chocolate - already has an embroidered look. But, this could be taken to another level by actually embroidering a small area of the fabric.
