This impressive collection of fiber art jewelry is the creation of a group of very talented Serbian family that includes the mother, Margita, and her three daughters, Mariajana, Hristina and Aleksandra. They employ a variety of traditional techniques of crocheting, knitting, hand weaving, embroidery, and felting to create these colorful and timeless accessories sold under the brand, rRradionica. The pieces are embellished with paper, vintage beads, bamboo beads and fabric covered buttons. Amazed at their success given the fact that they live in a country where supplies and services are often limited. You can view more of their designs on their blog and can also follow them on Facebook. Their jewelry can be purchased here on Etsy.

Singapore-based illustrator and textile designer, Teresa Lim, takes home a part of the country she visits with these awesome embroidered souvenirs. Incidentally, we like her embroidery embellishments on those canvas shoes as well. Her design philosophy is to join together her love of illustration, embroidery and surface pattern design. She also writes poetry, particularly favoring this insight from her blog:
“For the farther I travel, the closer I am to myself.
And thats what matters the most to me.
I believe it’ll be okay.”

Found 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.
