Heya, my name's Sophie King (also known as King Sophie's World). I'm a British contemporary embroidery artist. Welcome to my shop! Each item is designed by me and an extension of my artwork. Since 2012, I've been shipping orders all over the world from the UK.
As a small business I try my best to be environmentally friendly as possible and continue improving. My packaging is zero plastic and made from recycled materials. All packaging is recyclable and some is biodegradable, such as the mailing carriers. The brands I use for my clothing and tote bags, are part of the Fair Wear Foundation or WRAP certified.
Thank you so much to everyone that purchases something from my store, your support is very appreciated ♥♥♥

Throughout my work, I aim to show how textiles, especially embroidery, can be used as a powerful medium that can communicate messages and stories about ourselves and the world around us.
My most recent embroideries draw upon my personal experiences as woman in modern life. Exploring themes involving relationships, love, emotional well being and rebirth. I examine many of the problems women face in day to day life, presenting social-politcal commentary on such issues.
I have been commissioned for a range of work of various size and scope, for all kinds of clients, personal and commercial, from Gwen Stefani to Teen Vogue, Refinery29 and Bumble. I've also embroidered at pop up events, for brands such as Eileen Fisher. In 2017 I was a part of the group exhibition "Cut Cloth: Contemporary Textiles and Feminism."
My work has been featured in Nylon magazine, NME magazine, Lucky magazine, Teen Vogue magazine, Vogue.com, I-D.vice.com, Designboom and more.
