Sashiko or stich? Final - Japanese indigo scrap work
In the last article, I felt the work was completed. During the waiting time for framing, I was thinking...The title of work "昭和SHOWA era, JAPAN". So, I started thinking about my life in SHOWA.
Added Atom, Doraemon, Kakashi(Scare crow), it's too much things in a patched work.
But, that's a part of Showa. The work will be able to see at Hanasho from 1st Dec. Hope you can enjoy it!
Kimono bag maker/
Born in Japan, I was a convention organiser for 10 years. During the period, I had many opportunities to experience other cultures and practices in places where my work took me - including Spain, the Netherlands, England, Italy and the USA. My experiences made it clear to me - Japanese culture is Unique.
Arriving in Australia in 2001, lived and raised my daughter in Sydney, Lismore and here Brisbane. In 2004, I began making handmade bags from recycled kimono material.
I like nature,also love to see new friends. I will try "Upcycling kimono" !
