Butterflies & Moths by Yumi Okita

Written by  Phoebe C.

Beautiful textile sculptures of moths, butterflies, and other insects with various textiles and embroidery techniques caught our eye this month! The pieces are quite large, measuring nearly a foot wide and contain other flourishes including painting, feathers, and artificial fur. These alluring textile creatures are the products of artist Yumi Okita's beautiful imagination and skilled fingers! The North Carolina-based creator sews, embroiders, and stitches multi-colored fabrics into gorgeous moths, butterflies, and other insects. These textile sculptures look incredibly life-like, but given their size, we're happy they're not real! You can find them on etsy.
