Cresus Artisanat

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.

Miga de Pan

miga-de-panMiga de Pan is a small brand created by Buenos Aires creator Adriana Torres. She studied architecture, graphic design, illustration and fine arts and began her career as an art director. After a few years she decided to create her own project of handmade infant toys and home accessories but we are captivated by her embroidered work as well. On an interview with Modern Botanics she says this about her work:

“The possibility of creating is what I most love about my work. Sketching, creating new objects, thinking about the shape and choosing colors …”

“I also love to connect and to meet new people all the time! Remote places people feeling and thinking like me … That is something amazing that my work allows me. I had the luck to be chosen to join Argentine Pavilions both, at Maison & Objet Paris and 100% Design London, so I love the chance to travel thanks to my job! I feel I am a very lucky person.”

You can follow the artist on her website, Facebook and Instagram.

Renilde de Peuter

Renilde-de-PeuterWhile looking for crochet projects we found these circular potholders on the Japanese online store, Uguisu. They are the creation of Belgian textile artist and crafter, Renilde de Peuter, who shares much of her work in her blog, At-Swim-Two-Birds. Color and design elevates these simple utilitarian objects into a product with strong aesthetic appeal.
