EMBROIDERED INSECTS: BAROQUE PUNK WASP

Our baroque-meets-punk wasp motif was found in a jumble of vintage illustrations. After testing various hand embroidery techniques for best effect, our artisans settled on the "ari" stitch which is executed with a hooked needle, a legacy of the Mughal embroidery workshops from 18th century. We used metallic silver and gold threads to create a swarm of wasps that is electric and alive. Bring home your own Complete Unknown spiked wasp bag and create a buzz.



The spring metal thread used in this embroidery is ornate, durable and adds a 3D effect to the finished piece. It takes two artisans over 4 days on a loom to embroider each Wasp clutch. We love how each wasp is slowly transformed into a rock n roll statement. Resplendent and beautiful.
