Yoko and my family's Profile

About

Hi, I'm YOKO, living in Ibaraki Prefecture near central Tokyo.
I love to make a handcraft very much. I've experienced making some local hand crafts in several foreign countries where my husband was assigned. When I returned to Japan, soon I started making a hand craft with kimono fabric because I've also loved Japanese kimono since childhood. Watching kimono brings me some peace in my mind, it may be from my memories that my mother loved kimono, and she always wore a beautiful one.
I will make a lovely hand craft with Japanese kimono fabric, and it is a great encouragement to me if you love it, too.

I hope that my small craft makes you happy. You can feel Japanese taste from kimono fabric texture if it is decorated in your room. Some of my crafts are infused with meaning of desiring family's happiness and well-being of children.
How wonderful it…

How wonderful it would be that you present your lover with my kimono craft, or you make your heart go out to your family member over looking at the one decorated in the room.
As much as possible I will introduce Japanese tradition and event connected with my craft.

As I am not familiar with computer operation, this shop's management is supported by my family. so I would like to introduce some family member's craft someday.

=== Craft sold in this shop ===
Hand craft with Japanese kimono fabric,
and my family member's craft like pottery, woodworking at random times.

=== Main material used for my craft ===
* Vintage kimono fabric
Silk fabric is used mainly, sometimes linen, cotton and polyester also.
I am using such a fabric that used to be a kimono my mother or I have worn, or vintage kimono I purchased.
Unstitch such a kimono first, then each part is washed and ironed before using. So it is very clean without smell.

* Stuffing material
For stuffing material inside the craft, 100% polyester wadding is used.
