Miao Zheng

I am engaged in the artful creation of exquisite pieces using pure silk hand-woven velvet combined with intricate macramé and crochet techniques. Through my work, I strive to embody elegance, craftsmanship and uniqueness. Drawing inspiration from traditional textile techniques and merging them with techniques from other fields, I meticulously handcraft each piece with keen attention to detail.

crochet & velvet

I particularly cherish the ability to create fabrics that cannot be mass-produced. Industrial machines cannot achieve the seamless integration of macramé and crochet, preserving the distinct identities of each technique. This allows me to craft truly one-of-a-kind designs, where the beauty lies in the handmade artistry and the intricate combination of textures.

Each piece I create is a testament to the skill, creativity and unwavering attention to detail that I pour into my work. Whether it is a garment, an accessory, or a decoration, my creations exude an aura of luxury and sophistication. They invite you into a world where tradition and innovation seamlessly coexist, showcasing the timeless allure of handcrafted textiles and pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved through a harmonious blend of techniques.
