We provided Wilson with swatches of vintage and heritage fabric from Japan, most of which were leftovers from our production. Wilson magically pieced such “wasteful” small fabric swatches together, and “upcycled” them into irresistible works of art. The show also includes Wilson’s Shape Study series, made with her own hand-dyed fabrics.
Along with Wilson’s works, we will also display the latest KOFU collection of one-of-a-kind home goods made from traditional Japanese fabric, including fully hand-embroidered “sashiko” pieces, vintage “boro”, and ikat fabrics.
