日本の伝統技法である、絣織と裂織にインスピレーションを得て考案されたテキスタイルコレクション。
アイディアの始まりは、アパレル業界で問題となっている廃棄生地を有効活用したいという思いからです。アパレルではブランドがシーズンごとにオリジナルのプリントを量産しますが、ブランドの価値を守るため作り過ぎてしまった生地やサンプル反は焼却処分することもあります。ブランドの価値を損ねることなく、生地を再利用する方法の1つとして提案します。
絣織と裂織に着想を得て、生地を細かくカットし絣糸のようにし、緯糸として織るという技法を考案しました。再び糸にして織ることにより、プリントの柄が変化し、元の生地にはない表情が生まれ、新しい布に生まれ変わります。

This project proposes to reborn overly-stock and disposed fabric in fashion industries by adding new design values to those.
I was deeply inspired by conventional Sakiori not just by its techniques, but by the deep cultural philosophy of the Sakiori.Sakiori is a technique that was created in the past when Japan was not as wealthy as it is today, when resources were so precious and were treated with care and reused over and over again.During those times, Japanese people cut old kimonos and reused them as weft threads, which were then woven into fabrics and used as Haori (over-coat) and Zabuton (cushions over wood-floor).
Through my textile designs, I would like to convey people around the world the way Japanese people treat things with care because she thinks this is the way of thinking that we should all remember in this era overflowing with things.

Being inspired by the Japanese traditional weaving techniques called SAKIORI and KASURIORI, I was able to accomplish new design expressions and to create new Textile Collections using my original SAKIORI TECHNIQUE. By disassembling printed fabric into threads and then weaving those threads together, the new woven structure can add the new expressions to the original un- used fabrics and can be reborn as a new fabric.
