Fluffy Textile Moths And Butterflies By Yumi Okita

Published 5 years ago

These alluring textile creatures are the products of artist Yumi Okita’s beautiful imagination and skilled fingers. The North Carolina-based creator sews, embroiders, and stitches multi-colored fabrics into gorgeous moths, butterflies, and other insects. They’re quite a lot bigger than their live originals – up to nearly a foot wide. These textile sculptures look incredibly life-like, but given their enormous antennas, creepy-crawly legs and unsettling fur threads, we’re happy they’re not real.
