Intricate Embroideries Pay Homage to the Beauty of Moss


Moss embroidery by Emma Mattson

I love bright­ly-col­ored blooms as much as the next per­son, but the greens of the for­est are equal­ly as pret­ty. Espe­cial­ly moss—did you know there’s over 12,000 species of this flow­er­less plant? What vari­a­tion! How amaz­ing! Emma Matt­son pays homage to this organ­ism with a col­lec­tion of intri­cate embroi­deries. Using a vari­ety of tex­tures and shades of green, she cre­ates sculp­tur­al hoop art that fea­tures a ton of my favorite stitch, the French knot. I love how these pieces look together—hang them all in a group and it’s like you’ve got your own lit­tle for­est!

Emma sells her embroi­dery on Etsy… though they don’t last long. Fol­low her on Insta­gram for works in progress and upcom­ing sales.
