Summer Snow

SummerSnowFound this brand, Summer Snow, searching the product portfolios on Japanese site, Loftwork. Don’t know too much about the artists/designers but we do know that we like their work enormously. They cut out the best parts of discarded clothing and create these wonderful patches that are then attached to t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Yumi Okita

Yumi-OkitaThese stunning moth and butterfly sculptures are the creations of Japanese textile artist, Yumi Okita. The North Carolina-based designer creates these large pieces using different materials – cotton, feather, faux fur, embroidery thread and painted fabric. The pieces are sold here in her Etsy shop, which is currently showing a sculpted poppy that may be the start of a botanical series. Anxious to see her impending creations.

Claire Sounes Stitch

ClaireSounesWe always try to make our gift packages special so we thought of trying to make fabric hang tags. The ones pictured above were created by UK-based artist, Claire Sounes, who writes on her Etsy profile:

“I love designing and making items by hand. I like using traditional British fabrics especially Liberty Tana Lawn combined with linen and vintage buttons.”

You can purchase her designs here on Etsy under the brand, Clair Sounes Stitch and also here on Folksy under the shop name, Tokenhouse.
