The trio is worked in the same technique as the Siberian rug of 1200 years earlier: backstitched linen on linen around the decorative motifs, cotton stuffing in the trapunto sections, and running stitch quilting in the backgrounds.A similar quilt, possibly of silk, is shown in the Flemish Bartolomeo Bermejo’s 1450 painting The Death of the Virgin, placing quilting in the Netherlands by the 15 century (Lidz), while a German painting of 1500 shows a quilted, pieced tunic in what may well be the first accurate depiction of pieced clothing in western art (Gwinner).These early quilts and quilted objects, and virtually all surviving quilting until the 17 century, were of linen stuffed with raw cotton; if wool flocking was ever used for anything besides perhaps armor, it was far too attractive to moths to survive (Colby).That quilting was not confined to Italy and Germany is evident from two 15 century French references.That quilted objects were indeed traded is obvious from the next oldest quilted artifact, a spiral quilted slipper found in a rubbish tip in Samarkand, a major stop on the Silk Road between China and Europe (Liddell).The backstitch technique is identical to that used in the funerary rug.

Whether the Siberians developed quilting on their own or learned it from outsiders, its advantages in such a cold climate are obvious: warmth without bulk, strength without stiffness, useable in everything from clothing to saddlecloths, and unusual enough to be traded for luxury goods.

Quilting had clearly become part of the European needlework tradition.
