Modernist Edinburgh embroidered on postcards – in pictures


Designer Laura Lees has embroidered many things. Dart boards on to jackets for fashion designer Luella Bartley, trompe l’oeil panelling for a London restaurant, and even swear words on to table linen.

But these postcards, which will be on show at London Craft Week (30 Sept-10 Oct), were inspired by love of her home town. “I’m from Edinburgh, renowned for the medieval and neoclassical architecture you usually see on our tourist postcards, but I’m drawn to its modernist buildings, such as the Royal Commonwealth Pool.”
