Textile graduate from Bath Spa University (MA Fashion and Textile design) majoring in the woven textile field for fashion & interiors.
Graduating with first class honours in ‘Fashion Design and Culture’ in 2014, I have then moved from Tokyo to London in order to improve my communication skills in both English and Japanese and gain lifetime experiences.
In the past I have worked in a hand-weaver (textile) studio helping with the creation of different collections. I have also successfully collaborated with various designers creating collection of leather bags incorporating handwoven textile inserts.
I am currently living in Livorno, Italy, where I work as a weaver in a small studio.
