Some would call embroidery a lost art, but examining the works of several contemporary embroidery artists sure proves otherwise. This craft has existed, in some form, in every population across the globe for centuries, and it has a distinct ability to turn everyday objects into works of art. Whether displayed on clothing, home goods, or an artwork in its own right, this timeless craft is more inherent in our material culture than you might have realized.
In this collection, we highlight some especially talented textile artists who create fantastical landscapes or other scenes with a thread and needle, combining different techniques and innovations. Above all, they are proving that the craft embroidery should be preserved, as it’s full of creativity and beauty.
