Wouldnâ€™t at all mind receiving one of these embroidered cards sold under the brand name, Maru-Maru.Â As typical of many Japanese handmade shops very little is written about the maker. Â WE can only find this about the maker: “I love cute things!”Â ï¸Žâ€I love delicious food!Â ï¸Žâ€. Â
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.Â Like a painting, you can feel the dignified beauty and dedicated energy from the flowers drawn on the cloth with thread.Â The artist has also authored a book entitled, â€œEmbroidery Garden Flowersâ€.
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 macramÃ© brand, Kaiku.Â Of course very little is known about the maker except that she graduated from Bunka Designer Institute obtaining a color coordinator qualification.Â She makes these tapestries with brass and cotton threads.Â Her inspiration comes from the hand-knitted presents her grandmother gave her every year.
You can find her shop here at Minne.
