Although this textural trend isn’t entirely new, it’s so expansive that it deserves it’s own post. It only seems natural that the resurgence of prints in fashion and interior design would spawn an exploration of thread and the fiber arts, spilling over to all facets of art and design. Embroidery has become so incredibly popular, and is popping up in all kinds of unexpected places. When contrasted with flat, two dimensional imagery it creates an almost surreal juxtaposition of texture and technique. If you’re a tactile person like I am, you’ll have no problem finding ways to add a little embroidered goodness into your life.
