Zakka Embroidery by Yumiko Higuchi

Simple One- and Two-Color Embroidery Motifs and Small Crafts

Yumiko Higuchi

Japanese designer Yumiko Higuchi presents embroidery motifs to be stitched in just one or two colours – creating patterns and designs that are more evocotive for their form than for a play of colours.


Moving away from traditional embroidery motifs, the designs here are an elegant hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian style: the motifs and patterns are spare and graphic, yet softened with organic shapes and imagery drawn from nature. The result is embroidery that evokes a personal feel and conjures a sense of nostalgia and longing.


The work here feels very approachable and appropriate for beginner stitchers. Each embroidery design is paired with a simple project, such as ribbons, pillows and pouches.
