Maricor/Maricar

Typography meets hoop, needle & thread. Australian twin sisters Maricor and Maricar founded a niche business through their profound embroidery skills offering bespoke stitching services to clients, brands and customers. Instead of traditional hand embroidery the sisters like to create their own modern typography.

Their luminous thread lettering and motivational phrases are embellished in different stitching techniques often combined with other mediums such as paint. Graphic in design with a complex approach through the needle and thread. Their embroidery has a painterly appearance carefully thought out through stitching techniques and composition. Maricor & Maricar describe their methods as ‘painting with thread’.

An unexpected illustrative medium – something I haven’t come across before, I was really amazed seeing their portfolio of work. I can’t wait to see what future projects they work on.
