Last night I spent the evening meandering through the Instagram of embroidery artist Yumiko Higuchi.
Her delicate hand stitching is beautifully photographed & sends a quiet message ~
Her needlework is filled with fanciful details of flora, fauna, and any other wonderful curiosities that happen to catch her eye!
Born in 1975 & a resident of Tokyo, after graduating from Tama Art University, Yumiko Higuchi began working as a handmade bag designer. Not wishing to be bound by traditional embroidery, she began creating her own designs in 2008.
I absolutely adore her mini wool stitch coin purses! Her exquisite workmanship includes designing and finishing each piece by hand!
Yumiko Higuchi thanks you & shares her needlework knowledge and patterns in individual kits and in her latest book, Wool Stitch.
To learn more about the embroidered nature of Yumiko Higuchi visit her website. There you'll find links to her store & other social media.
