Inspired by nature, Russian artist Alexandra Goltsova (of Mart Bag) crafts charming embroidered bags adorned with floral motifs and stitched forest creatures. From cute purses to cross-body bags, Goltsova’s cheerful collection lets wearers carry a little piece of the outdoors with them everywhere they go.
Goltsova begins by meticulously hand-stitching her embroidery design onto lush velour fabric. Once complete, she then crafts the material into her signature tear drop-shaped bags, and finishes them by adding decorative metal clasps and pretty chains. Goltsova always makes sure to select the background fabric so that the color complements her nature-inspired subjects. In one design, a stitched sprig of lavender looks pretty against the deep purple fabric, and in another, a garden bird stands out colorfully on deep navy velour.
Check out some of Goltsova’s charming bags below, and head over to her Etsy shop to purchase them for yourself.
