Upcycled Clothing Given New Life with Large, Tactile Embroideries


Embroidery by Tessa Perlow

Tes­sa Per­low embroi­ders gar­ments with bold flow­ers, turn­ing ordi­nary tank tops and t-shirts into some­thing spec­tac­u­lar. The up-cycled fash­ions are in keep­ing with the long tra­di­tion of cul­tures who adorn their cloth­ing with dec­o­ra­tive stitch­es. These pieces recall hints of beau­ti­ful Oax­a­ca dress­es, but with a mod­ern twist as blooms freely flow down and across the body.

You can buy Tessa’s hand­i­work in her Etsy shop. Fol­low her on Insta­gram for works in progress!
