Tokyo Project 22

Coming soon …

Recently I’ve been very busy working on a new project that we’ve named ‘LINK’.

Established with a good friend in Tokyo, LINK is a collective that produces collaborative textiles and design from around the world. With so many things to prepare and consider, while juggling work and our busy lives as parents, it’s been a long time coming …

but finally, very soon, LINK’s first product will be available – our limited edition furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping cloth) in two designs – one design by Hennie Haworth (a British illustrator) and the other is by me!

We will soon announce the launch of our new website showing when and where you can find our furoshiki, in the meantime please join LINK on facebook for updates!

The beauty of skill

Preparing and cutting red leather for gloves.

Hermes is not quite my style, however today I did enjoy looking at their site – especially where they show video clips of their craftspeople working on certain products. There is something so satisfying about watching a skilled pair of hands working, almost automatically, methodically and seamlessly on something.
