The bestiary under the stars



Colorful and poetic, here are the eight first little flags from the Bestiary under the stars : the lion, the panther, the two coyotes, the buffalo, the giraffe, the bear and the elephant.
They are made of heavy cotton, sunflower yellow or rosewood pink, put on a wooden beech stick with a natural linen string. They are entirely hand embroidered, sewn and painted — and sawn and pierced.
They are also unique and numbered pieces. Read more ›
