When it comes to hand embroidered hoop art, purses, patches and jewellery, you can’t get much better than the talented creations of İrem Yazıcı, otherwise known as Baobap Handmade.
Taking inspiration from classic art, pop culture and nature, she uses colourful threads to stitch her wearable embroidered art pieces – some of which are applied to old bottle tops. When you look closely at each artwork, you’ll be blown away by the detail – particularly her Miyazaki/Spirited Away-inspired hoop artwork.
İrem has just launched a new online shop where you can currently purchase mini embroidered collar pins that follow various themes such as florals, animals and plants – as well as hand-stitched pendants.
