Great stuff, plep.

This site reminded me of the stunning quality and detail of traditional Korean embroidery. More here. It's hard to believe sometimes that it's just threads sewn by hand.

Very nice! I adore Japanese handicraft arts, especially kimono art, and I've always been fascinated by the "mon" (or "ka-mon") family crests, some nice examples of which can be found on our old favorite, Cultural Entomology. Also, some interesting information on motifs in Japanese textiles here.
