Shukugawa Sakura Sagyosyo

Found these great linen bags with embroidery on both sides in the Japanese handmade market site, Creema. These are sold under the brand name, Shukugawa Sakura Sagyosyo.  The Japanese embroidery method is sashiko which means “little stabs”. The running stitch was traditionally used to reinforce or repair worn fabrics but today it is primarily used for decorative purposes. Purl Soho has an abridged description of the craft on their tutorial page.

We found very little information on the maker but you can follow them on their website and see more of their work on Instagram and on Creema.

Sarah Neubert

Admiring these woven jewelry created by Colorado-based fiber artist, Sarah Neubert, whose work includes wall hangings, household items and wearable art pieces. In her profile she says this about her work:

“My weaving practice is a search for balance and presence; I use it to explore the complexities of everyday life and the hidden patterns in the natural world. I approach my work as a collaboration with unique natural fibers that speak to me about what they want to become.”

You can see more of her work on her website and on Instagram.

Marcello Velho is an England-based graphic artist known for his experimental and ambiguous compositions. Our attention, however, is focused on his masterful floral abstractions. Wish we could find more information about these designs and the artist but for now we should just view and admire his work.
