About

What is Kimekomi?

Kimekomi is a technique where a pattern is drawn and then cut onto a surface, such as a smooth foam. The fabric is then placed over the pattern and tucked into the cuts.

Kimekomi was developed in the 18th century in Japan as a doll making technique. Kimekomi literally means "to tuck into a groove". The technique has been passed down through the generations and somewhere along the way, someone started making kimekomi balls. With the modern invention of foam balls and the easy access to materials, kimekomi is no longer limited to Japanese artisans.

I learned the basics of kimekomi in 2010, have since honed my skills and started making my own designs with my own unique flavor. I take great pride in the creation of each item.
