ENNESTE Naturally Dyed Embroidery Threads Box
More have just been made for us, and arrived from Japan!
This is the most perfect gift for anyone into stitching, and embroidery. A little box of treasure!
Enneste Tokyo in collaboration with Hiromi Fujimoto.
Designed by Hiromi Fujimoto Couture, Tokyo and Paris
Hand-dyed by ENNESTE Tokyo, JAPAN with colour and materials selected by Hiromi Fujimoto.
19 naturally dyed different threads per box of silk, mohair, cotton, bamboo, linen and merino wool!
Please note that these are naturally dyed threads, and there will be some variation with colours. The boxes are all the same, but will vary slightly.
Several months were spent in getting the colour just right on different materials. 8 different types of thread have been naturally dyed and we think the result is absolutely stunning! The soft and delicate colours are so beautiful! The box is very beautiful too with an illustration by
Anna Hashimoto based on her original coloured pencil drawings and inspired by Hiromi's embroidery work.
