IronomoriDon’t be surprised if I do repeat postings on this Japanese brand, Ironomori. Really liking their embroidered pins and earrings. Since the last posting on our old blog site, they have created another style that combines original illustration and embroidery. You can follow them on Facebook and purchase their collection on Japanese handmade market sites, Creema, Iichi and Minne.

You can  see more of her artwork on her website, and purchase her postcards here on the Japanese handmade marketplace, Iichi.
