My Mum Taught Read more [...]
Hello. I’m Olga Prinku, designer and maker behind flowers on tulle. My background is in graphic design, but I’ve always loved making. My journey started with learning how to crochet and knit and the wool products you might have purchased in the past here.
Gradually through various experiments and social media platforms like Instagram my path diverged to flowers and botanical art. I came to develop a floral embroidery technique using real organic material as my thread which I now have embraced fully and will continue to explore and improve as well as learn and teach my skills.
My work has been featured in a number of printed and online publications as well as on TV:
Flower Ladies (Germany, Verlagsgruqppe Random House), Aesthetica Botanica (China, Sandu Publishing), Silence, Ca Pousse! Creer Sa Deco Nature (Hachette Livre, France), Our Maker Life (USA), Couch (Germany), 25 Beautiful Homes (UK), Maison Creative (France), Town & Country (UK), Homespun (Australia), House Beautiful (UK), 91 Magazine (UK), Trend Welten (Germany), Casa Facile (Italy), Casas de Campo(Spain), Simply Sewing (UK), marthastewart.com, thisiscolossal.com, designsponge.com, ballpitmag.com, craftcouncil.org, theitalianreve.com, thesefourwallsblog.com, creativewifeandjoyfulworker.com, sarahkbenning.com/craft-with-conscience, brwnpaperbag.com, ichselbstaendig.strikingly.com

I keep experimenting with my botanical embroideries and testing this new technique I came up with. I’m finding there’s so many possibilities and ideas that I hope I can inspire people to try their own hand at it. I’m super excited to be sharing my knowledge and skill so far through digital tutorials done in collaboration with these amazing craft platforms.
