Left Your Camera At Home? This Traveller Stitches A Mini Landscape Everywhere She Goes

Teresa Lim has changed how we'll think about our holiday pics forever...

Teresa Lim, a 24 year old designer, travels the world and documents the places she visit.

Instead of taking photos however, she embroiders landscapes of the places she’s been while she’s there instead.

Teresa says it’s her love of travel, along with her aim to blur boundaries between design and textiles that gave her the idea for the project.

When I’m done with a piece, I actually feel like I know that place…

So far she has embroidered scenes from London, Vietnam, China, Berlin and many more awesome spots.

“I started the project late 2014 after I realised that with today’s state of the art technology, taking pictures becomes so easy” explains Teresa on her site.

“I wanted something more from my travels, to be able to take back a part of that place with me.

When I’m done with a piece, I actually feel like I know that place, and that gives me a huge sense of satisfaction that I think just taking a photo wouldn’t give.”

This has really made us think about how much we’re appreciating what’s around us when we’re snapping away.

You can’t get better travel souvenirs than these!
