THE RED EMBROIDERY SHOP
Items at The Red Embroidery are unique.
By purchasing a product from The Red Embroidery, you yourself are creating a unique numbered accessory, signed and accompanied by a parchment that tells the story of the fabric, yarn and embroidery.
If not immediately available, the creation of a single piece requires time according to the work already in progress and the customisation required.
The embroideries and decorations chosen may vary according to material availability.
ABOUT THE RED EMBROIDERY
Somebody called me an artist, but I consider myself a craftswoman with a passion for sewing, embroidery and the reinterpretation of old fabrics.
Starting out from my small workshop in Bologna, I decided to create a label to brand and market my products of truly unique handmade items.
I combine my passion and love for embroidery with an inspiration received from the textile artists of the Bauhaus movement, from Japanese embroiderers and the Italian traditions of embroidery and darning.
Why did I chose The Red Embroidery for my label?
I love this colour. My signature consists of a red thread sewn several times on the right edge of my creations.
Before working on a piece, I carry out in-depth research to find the fabrics that best suit my ideas.
I work with different fabrics, ranging from antique linen handwoven in old farmhouses to silk, up to coarser warps such as old Italian army bags and sheets in hemp, linen or cotton or elegant fabrics such as clothing from vintage labels.
I experiment with various possibilities of colour and composition until I find the best combination, searching for harmony between the various components.
I sew and embroider according to my instincts.
Needle and thread take control and the hand follows.
Often, I personally dye my beloved fabrics as it makes sure I can find the perfect colour for the creation of my ideas.
I often recycle leather and hides from previous works in my creations, with glass beads, small ceramic elements and decorations painted directly on the fabrics.
Each creation is entirely handmade and for this reason my pieces are unique and unrepeatable.
My main creations are clutches, backpacks, shoulder bags, totes, amulets, brooches, bracelets and face masks, but my curiosity and the desire to experiment are leading me to create new creations that will soon be online in limited editions.
I love collaborating with talented artisans and craftsmen who I ask to make small sculptures for my products such as flowers, butterflies, hearts, fish, pendants and jewels created by hand specifically for The Red Embroidery.
