Black and White

Something special lies within black and white embroidery work. The contrast of shadows and highlights in monochrome needlework makes intricate black threads pop off white fabric. Despite this loud dynamism, there’s a sort of quiet, intimate sentiment about them. It demands for immediate attention, then invites you to take a closer look at its details. A real attention-seeker, in our opinion, but a pure and timeless one nonetheless. We picked out 8 embroidery artists sure to capture your attention and curiosity with their monochrome artworks! (Just don’t spend too long examining one, because we’ve got many to go around)
