About

What is soutache? And who am I?

Soutache embroidery is an age-old technique used for decorating garments. The soutache is a flat and narrow type of thread; it's made of natural fabrics such as silk and wool and it comes in many colors. Soutache embellishments became very popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries - think of the military uniforms of that era!

Soutache is very versatile, it can be wrapped and layered to create intricate patterns and shapes. That's why it's perfect for jewelry-making.

I love to imagine elaborate and sophisticated designs and then bring them to reality by carefully sewing the various pieces together (threads, gems, wooden or ceramic beads, tassels, pompoms, feathers and other awesome materials).

My goal is to bring soutache to the 21st century - make use of this traditional technique but with a twist. My style is a blend - I love to create unexpected combinations, I am not afraid to play with colours and different techniques. In my store you'll find a fusion of styles - urban, ethnic, hippie, african tribal, boho-chic and others.

I love to experiment and try out new things; if you have a crazy idea and you'd like to have something made especially for you, bring it on! I am in for the ride!
