this little thread


At this little thread we create beautiful handmade, embroidered and textile items using high quality as well as reclaimed, recycled, vintage and found materials.

Most of the pieces created are one of a kind because the materials are sourced from selected fabrics, vintage, recycled, upcycled or found items. 

Each piece has been carefully designed with attention to detail. They are crafted to highlight the unique materials and traditional embroidery techniques used.
