I hadn't heard of wood embroidery until I saw the work of Nosheen Iqbal of Dallas, Texas. And now that I have, I'm a bit obsessed...
Nosheen combines thread, paint, wood veneers and bamboo to create some truly stunning pieces of art that she sells from $80 and up. Much of her work is commissioned based or found at local Dallas shops and events.
Nosheen found much inspiration in her childhood as both her mother and grandmother had impressive textile and thread collections and taught her how to sew at a young age. Nosheen experimented with using wood and thread and slowly she found her own niche in the market, now designing under the name, Noshii.
This beauty was an installation piece Nosheen did for the Hermes window in the Highland Park Village of Dallas.
What I love too is her transition from panels to jewelry as she also crafts rings and bangles with wood and thread. Nosheen is currently sold out of these in her Etsy shop but I'd keep a close eye on the shop, or contact her here for more info.
