Aubrey Longley-Cook's Green Thumb

Aubrey has embroidery in his blood – his grandfather wove geometric woollen patterns for fabrics. And you can tell that this talent has passed on to Aubrey who, quite frankly, seems destined for stitching greatness.

He embroiders, he embellishes vintage materials, stitches on cards and other media, and I’m sure this is the tip of his iceberg. I’m really digging these stitcheries of his own fingerprints. A clever idea, well executed and cool as hell.
