Eriko Watabe

Looks like we have another craft to learn, Nanduti lace. The name means “spider web” in the indigenous language of Paraguay.  The lace is worked on tightly stretched frame and are released by cutting away the backing fabric.  The samples shown above are the work of Japanese Nanduti artist, Eriko Watabe. She sells elegant accessories under her brand name Puka.

The artist can be followed on Facebook and Instagram.  She also has a shop here on Japanese Base shop select market.

Sim & Zou


Sim and Zou are two French artists based in Nancy, France.  The duo, Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, are best known for their installations using primarily their favorite material, paper. In reviewing their projects we found this incredible handmade font created with thread and paper. Weave Type 2 was made with 550 yards of thread and required about 6 hours per letter.

You can see their first weave font and paper projects on their website and on Behance.
