Nui Project

The Nui Project is a body of fiber work, mostly embroidery, done by a group of textile artists in Kagoshima, Japan. The artists have intellectual disabilities. For this project the artists have used ready-made shirts and have embroidered them, and then offered them for sale. There is a great article here, in HandEye magazine. There is a book published as well, which I believe is in two volumes. I got the following images from a blog post, here, at Day In and Day Out blog.
