About LittleHungarianHeart

Sales 751
On Etsy since 2016

Promoting Hungarian embroidery - there is a heart in Hungary!

My journey started in Canada – born to Hungarian parents and speaking a mix of English and Hungarian. Growing up, my mother and grandmother passed down their skills and knowledge about embroidery, food and traditions.

After living in Hungary in the 1990’s and travelling, I discovered that all embroidery follows a pattern of life & death, nature & nurture and love & purity.

The items featured on the website are purchased from under privileged regions of Hungary and Romania, giving artists a means of supplementing their income while preserving the slowly disappearing traditions of their region.

I hope you find the love and passion reflected in the pieces I have curated for you. Each item is either purchased directly from the artisan or a women’s collective and sold at a fair price for all.

Living in Bournemouth, Dorset, with my English husband, children and lunatic pets, I hope you enjoy all you find on this website.
