Botanical stamp IV
This stamp is part of a collection of six pieces inspired by the typical designs used in traditional Russian embroidery.
The stamps are made exclusively by hand, carving the rubber with gouges of different sizes.
The stamp you will buy has no wooden support and is made of rubber that can be washed with soap and water or using a wet wipe.
It can be stamped on both paper and fabric, obviously using the most suitable inks. Possible traces of ink can be found on the surface as the stamp must be printed to see the result. You will also receive a card with the final print.
Shipping costs: Shipping costs will be calculated in the purchase phase. We are the spokesperson for a community of artisans, so each item is sent directly from the person who produced it. Delivery times will respect the rhythm of those who have worked on this project with care.

Elena Fodera is the founder of Ikoì Arte, a project dedicated to botanical art prints.
Ikoì was born from the combination of a love for nature, the art of engraving and inks.
Through the use of ancient printing techniques, some almost forgotten, Elena transforms nature into unique pieces, with the intention of exploring the elements and conveying new emotions.
Trained at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan and specialising in colour printing at the “Il Bisonte” foundation in Florence, Elena engraves matrices in wood, zinc, copper and rubber, which are then inked and printed by hand or using an intaglio press.
Among the printing techniques used, the oldest one is the use of real leaves as printing matrices.
This process, also cited by Leonardo Da Vinci in the Codex Atlanticus as the best way to reproduce natural elements, was also used until the end of the 19th century for the production of herbals and is now proposed again by Ikoì for the production of its creations, using only no-toxic inks and tools, in order to guarantee a sustainable and respectful process.
