Cross-stitch embroideries

Cross-stitch embroideries

For years, Ulla-Stina Wikander has collected cross-stitched embroideries. According to the Swedish designer, they are “seen as kitsch and regarded pretty worthless. I think that sometimes they are really beautiful and I want to bring them back to life.”

And that’s what she does by covering everyday household items from the ’70s – like a rotary phone, iron or coffee machine – in embroideries. And then, all of a sudden, they look completely different.
