As a self-professed "homebody," I have always believed that home is more than just a place; it's an extension of our identity. In my newest collection, I draw inspiration from an inner monologue about the intimacy of home and explore its unparalleled comfort through textiles like raw silk, muslin, linen, and vintage kimono. Each piece pays homage to our ever-evolving selves and the remarkable growth that happens within the walls of home in every chapter of life.
Working with the vintage kimonos has been a highlight for me. They weave in a sense of nostalgia and wanderlust—a tangible connection to distant places and cherished memories. Comfy robe-like kimonos have been a staple in my home for years, worn almost ritualistically at this point. In this collection, you'll find a standout series dedicated to my kimono studies. The choice of inks and natural dyes in my process enhances the organic essence of home, with several pieces featuring tea and raw pigments created from muddled roots in the kitchen.
Home is a sanctuary. It's where we are in control of the energy. It's where every detail, from the colors to the textures, from the scents to the sounds, creates the unique vibiness that makes what started out as just a space into your dwelling place.
