A forest nymph, entwined in layers of dusty smoke and fire emerges from the shadows, drifting into town - but she forgot her shoes. An ethereal fable in the afternoon hours of sun down.
Hand stitching on a Kimono
I remember my grandma used to make kimonos for my sister and I.
They were all made by hand.
She sits on tatami floor with a small shoulder bend and slowly slowly stitches the kimono materials together.
It looks like she was treating the kimono very carefully much like holding a child.
Each stitch was so perfectly sewn and I clearly remember the routine of her hand stitches. It took forever.
Those kimonos were made for special occasions.
BLACK has many meanings. It is elegant, mysterious, futuristics and infinite. It is a protective colour in Japan.
Recently we have invited some young team members into the dogstar fold!
As much as I love my current experienced team members I love these young ones too.
We made aprons, from Japanese vintage fabric, I have kept these fabrics for more than 10 years!!
Don't they look great on it?
These aprons are protecting their clothes from our cutting table.
They have so much passion and energy!
Some of their ideas may seem crazy but that makes dogstar exciting.
I love working with them...
