The Department of Extraordinary Embroidery loves these exquisite insects handmade by UK-based textile artist Heather Everitt. Each piece is based on Everitt’s own drawings of real butterflies and other insects.
“my embroidered hatchlings and other creatures. Every item is unique and crafted with care, I aspire to a create a new kind of taxidermy where the beauty of an insect, animal or bird is reflected in the finest materials. I use the techniques of appliqué, embroidery and hand beading.”
