Patternbank discovered these incredible Temari on Pinterest via Roger Yorke, a dealer of antique ethnic textiles, specialising in Japanese Kimonos and textiles. Check out his other inspiring boards while your there, he has a feast of inspiration. The Temari here are by Nana Akua’s Grandma who is in her 90′s! You can see more stunning examples of her work on Akua’s dedicated flickr page. Patternbank are in total admiration of the time and skill that must of gone into making these beautiful works of art. We are sure you’ll be inspired by the hundreds of patterns found in these embroidered wonders.
