Custom-made ribbon embroidery
Eero Aarnio (https://www.magisdesign.com/elenco_prodotti/puppy/) is a Finnish furniture designer. One of his projects was specially created for small children. He designed a chair in the shape of a dog. In fact, it is an abstract plastic dog made of rotational-moulded polyethylene. They are awailable in different sizes and colours from MAGIS Italian company: https://www.magisdesign.com/
MAGIS has exhibitions all over the world. Recently the one in Hong Kong was held to advertize their products. There was also a charity auction organized there. MAGIS asked May Tang, a young yet extremely tallented London-based fashion designer (https://maytang.co/) to create some very special decoration for that dog-shaped chair, as it was going to be selled by that auction. She decided to make a delicate tule covering decorated with silk ribbon embroidery and invited me to do the job.
Here is the result of our mutual efforts:
Flowers with beaded centres were added by May Tang herself, while the pieces of the covering were being stitched together. And she was very pleased with the embroidery result.
Playing around with colour is really a lot of fun. Worth doing!
Happy stitching and...
