Kirikí Press

One of my favourite discoveries in Prince Edward County was the little shop Kokito. Chrissy took us out for a surprise visit to the town of Bloomfield where we became firmly glued to the inside of Kokito until every object had been handled and admired. I had a hard time choosing from a range of embroidery doll kits by Kirikí Press, but eventually picked the little red fox. Kirikí Press is an independent design company run by Toronto-based printmaker Michelle Galletta. The kits are handcrafted and neatly packaged: screen printed animals on cotton with markings for embroidery, accompanied by concise instructions, stuffing and coloured thread. I had the good fortune to meet the maker in London last weekend at the Renegade Craft Fair too. You can find all the embroidery kits on the Kirikí  shop here.
