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.

Are we all drooling over this leatherwork? It's been going around a little bit on Pinterest. It is the work of Nutsa Modebadze, a Russian artist. Her work is not yet available in this country apparently. Take a look at her website here. That tall brown leather bag would suit me just fine.
