When most people visit interesting places and see beautiful sights, they take a photograph. But Designer Teresa Lim has chosen to capture her memories in a more unusual format – with embroidery. From Vietnam to Tokyo, her holiday mementos come in the format of beautiful, intricate embroidery of the landscape around her.
The series, which is called “Sew Wanderlust” captures the places Teresa has visited in all their glory, and the execution is fabulous – not only the quality of the embroidery, but also in the format the pieces are displayed – photographs show the sewing held up against the landmark they capture.
Described as an ‘On-going collection of embroidered landscapes, documented on-site while exploring the world’, the series covers everything from Big Ben to the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.
