Tuesday Travel Inspiration: Needle and Passport
If you're anything like me, you wouldn't travel anywhere without your camera. Being snap-happy comes natural when you're in a new place and you want to remember every detail possible. Designer Teresa Lim, however, has thought of a new way of documenting travel - embroidery.
Whilst most of us rush around, trying to see as much as possible of the place, Lim takes the time to embroider the scenes she sees before her, creating the perfect souvenir to take back home. She explains that '...when I'm done with a piece, I actually feel like I know that place, and that gives me a huge sense of satisfaction that I think just taking a photo wouldn't give.'
