Wouldn’t at all mind receiving one of these embroidered cards sold under the brand name, Maru-Maru. As typical of many Japanese handmade shops very little is written about the maker. WE can only find this about the maker: “I love cute things!” ︎”I love delicious food! ︎”.
Her shop can be found here at Minne.

These finely detailed embroidery are the works of Japanese embroidery artist, Yanase Rei. She often hand embroiders flowers and leaf motifs. Like a painting, you can feel the dignified beauty and dedicated energy from the flowers drawn on the cloth with thread. The artist has also authored a book entitled, “Embroidery Garden Flowers”.
More of her work can be viewed on Tumblr and Instagram.

We were browsing in the Japanese handmade marketplace, Minne, and found this very unique macramé brand, Kaiku. Of course very little is known about the maker except that she graduated from Bunka Designer Institute obtaining a color coordinator qualification. She makes these tapestries with brass and cotton threads. Her inspiration comes from the hand-knitted presents her grandmother gave her every year.
You can find her shop here at Minne.
