The world of tapestry recently received a breath of fresh air from Melborne artist Emma Sulzer.  Tapestry, the art of weaving designs and scenes into fabric, usually comes in the form of wall hangings.  Inspired by  her friend's sneaker collection and a desire to rejuvenate the art form, Sulzer choose athletic footwear classics as the subject or her recent Australian art show. Each model took 40 hours to create, breaking each sneaker down into pattern pieces that were separately weaved, then sewn together and finally crafted on a wire frame. While the replicas are not wearable, they are for sale. Purchase inquires can be sent to
