London-based textile and accessories designer, Charlene Mullen, created these intricate hand embroidered pillows. Her unique line drawings are replicated to scale on tracing paper and then sent to India where it is transferred to cloth and hand embroidered by master craftsmen. The end result is, of course, an exquisite work of art.

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows: ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’
and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’

Coral & Tusk is a Brooklyn based atelier founded in 2007 by textile designer, Stephanie Housley with her husband Chris Lacinak. Their embroidered products are inspired by a love of animal, travel and adventure. Wouldn’t mind collecting a few of those pocket dolls myself.
