What is Bunka Punch Embroidery?
The word ‘Bunka’ means culture in Japanese. Bunka Punch Embroidery had its origin in Japan in the 1930’s with its intended principles borrowed from the European form of Punch Embroidery (now more commonly known as ‘Russian’ or 'European' embroidery – with many companies putting their own spin on it.) It differs from other forms of embroidery, with the project being worked from the front of the fabric rather than from behind. So the work can be seen at all times and you are not working "blind".
