Damn #1 – embroidery 13cm



Damn! We need to normalise the period talk.

Have any men refused to buy tampons because it’s embarrassing? More than once! I remember a man asking me to split the shopping because I put tampons in the basket. Money was not the reason, he was embarrassed to buy them.

I have many stories that have left a scar of thinking that menstruation is shameful. Not everyone has been given the privilege of an education that talks openly about menstruation. I didn’t have that privilege for a long time either and thought it was always necessary to hide and whisper about it. Dropping a menstrual pad in class was always painful for every girl in my school.

This is one of the two menstruation-inspired embroideries (Damn #1 and Damn #2). This is my contribution to the normalising period talk. Are you in?

Uwaga 1: Rzeczywiste kolory mogą się różnić, w zależności od ustawień monitora, ale zapewniam, że są piękne. Uwaga 2: Na szczęście nie jestem maszyną i używam swoich rąk do pracy nad haftem, dlatego każdy wzór jest unikalny. Celowo pomijam używanie szablonów do niektórych partii wzoru, aby podkreślić ich niepowtarzalność.
