Bunka embroidery, also known as Japanese punch needle embroidery, is often likened to painting with thread on fabric. Layers of brightly colored rayon thread and a punch needle are used to create detailed pictures that resemble the subtle dimension and look of an oil painting.

Bunka Shishu, another name for this technique, is often viewed as more of an artform than a craft but with companies now offering bunka kits with step-by-step instructions, more and more crafters are learning how to create these wonderful masterpieces.

In this section you can learn more about bunka embroidery and it's history, purchase bunka kits and supplies, and view examples of this art and craft.
