Ria Paramita Embroidery Story on Etsy

After I quit my job as a Textile Design lecturer at the School of Textile Technology Bandung and became a full fledge stay at home mom, I started exploring embroidery as a mean of filling my spare time and soon discovered that apart from the newfound passion it becomes more than a hobby but a way to channel my confidence, ambitions, and aspirations.

A new chapter began in 2014, I challenged myself to open my first online shop at Etsy. The experience —with the support of Etsy's team and its community—has enriched my knowledge such as design thinking, marketing, and customer relationship management.

The Family portraits doll was my first signature creation, followed by various plushies, hoop art, and my second signature creation was The Girl in Sunflower Field each of these products was all meticulously crafted by hand and made uniquely to order.

Accepting customer's request can be daunting for some as each person has their own peculiarity to grasp, but for my customer's idiosyncrasies and stories can add value and breathe life to my artworks.

I like to combine several techniques such as embroidery, crochet, and sewing as well embellishing it with materials such as plastic pears, tassel, pom-pom, and lace to create textures in my creations.
By using these media could bring me back to my childhood memories with my mom. My mom used to sew her own clothes there were fabric stashes, dressmaking books and colourful sewing thread at home and I spent most of my childhood playing with these objects.

My embroidery inspiration comes were from the warmth a family love so as my pets, but when I working on dolls, I mostly inspired by my daughter's illustrations. I think her drawings are sweet and innocent that could bring a smile to grown-ups, that I wants to represent in my dolls.

In addition to selling finished pieces, I shares my love of embroidery through a digital pattern, Youtube channels and occasionally teaches workshops.
