Beautiful Brooches

sumptuosity brooch

We love these freehand machine embroidery designs from York based Sumptuosity. Ruth was an historian of art & design, specialising in fashion & textile history, before she gave it all up to create beautiful silk products: button badges, mirrors, bookmarks.

We’ve ordered a couple of batches, so you might find one tucked inside your Gift Owl parcel if you’re lucky.
