From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The art of embroidery was known to the Jews (Ex. 26:36; 35:35;
    38:23; Judg. 5:30; Ps. 45:14). The skill of the women in this
    art was seen in the preparation of the sacerdotal robes of the
    high priest (Ex. 28). It seems that the art became hereditary in
    certain families (1 Chr. 4:21). The Assyrians were also noted
    for their embroidered robes (Ezek. 27:24).
