Typical of many Japanese sites information on Tokyo-based artist, Haruhi, is often hard to find. What we do know is that she is the creator of these unique and incredible needlepoint bags. Her original work is sold under the brand name, Cresus Artisanat. You can follow the artist on her blog and on Flickr. Her items can be purchased here in her Etsy shop.

For four decades Sissel Blystad has been a central figure within Scandinavian textile arts. She creates large scale tapestries and shaped textiles using bright colorful hand-dyed wool fiber on board. She is also one of the first textile artist to incorporate digital rendering as composition guide. Much of her ‘drawings with thread’ is abstract built on repetition of small elements. The artist who lives and works in Oslo was educated at the Crafts and Arts School and Bergen Handicrafts School.

We love the fabrics and product extensions of this Japanese textile brand, Makumo. The tiny garage brand is the brainstorm of Japanese designer, illustrator and screen printer Miki Fukuyama. Her four member company designs, prints and makes all their products in Fukuoka, Japan. Some of their products are available here in their English online store. Their shoe collection is available here at Onitsuka Tiger.
You can follow this group on their website, Facebook and Instagram.
