Hi, I’m Elli, a hand embroiderer based in London.

 

My love for craft comes from childhood in Estonia and my grandmother who used embroidery and knitting to create everyday items. After moving to London I pursued my passion for needlework and contemporary design, starting at Central St. Martins College. This led to studying Japanese embroidery and technical hand embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework.

 

I believe in the motto of Japanese embroidery that hands are the exit of the spirit and we should stitch with our heart. I continue to follow my passion and create bespoke embroidery pieces which are influenced by tradition but have a modern feel.

 

If you love embroidery like me and would like to keep up to date to see my other work, follow my Instagram.
