    Rabari Rug Collection by Doshi Levien for Nanimarquina.

    16th June

    I’ll preface this post by saying that this was one of my Top 5 favourite products from Milan Design Week. Yep, 100% – these are that good. Designed by Doshi Levien for Spanish rug maker Nanimarquina, Rabari rug collection evokes “the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.” I am a real sucker for projects which clearly reference designers’ past experiences, memories, ethnic origins and iconography, particularly when brought into a contemporary context such as this. For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.

    Badass Embroidery by Ana Teresa Barboza.

    4th December

    Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza is so mother f*@$#!%g badass with embroidery and drawings. No, but seriously, have you ever seen embroidery look this mean? Except for maybe this one time, at band camp. There’s something so captivating about these images, don’t you think? They are equal parts delicate, feminine, gruesome and spine-tingling. As you know, it’s so easy to draw me in with a bit of quality paradox action…



    Pens & Needles // Digitally Manipulated Embroidered Posters by CUSTHOM.

    16th January

    Clever and talented London-based design studio CUSTHOM recently curated a super beautiful exhibition of tactile posters. A selected group of twelve designers each submitted an artworks which CUSTHOM manipulated through stitch or mechanical drawing, using a ‘hacked’ digital embroidery machine. The result is a perfect marriage between technology and art, and one of the most beautiful and progressive examples of computer-aided works I’ve seen…

    Embroidered X-rays by Matthew Cox.

    22nd February

    Matthew Cox is a Philadelphia based artist who embraces and joins a variety of media in his work. His medical x-ray and embroidery series is just soooo… oh, I don’t know… bizarre, bad-ass and pretty amazing all at once. The contrast of decorative and technical, labour-intensive and instant comes together so beautifully, and I love the way Matthew’s touch makes lifeless x-rays literally come to life…
