Announcement   Textile and collaborative design work. From Japan to the world and from the world to Japan.

www.thelinkcollective.com

It was co-founded by two friends who first met in Tokyo in 2003 and after many discussions exchanging ideas and dreams, they knew they’d love to work together one day. Now they live at opposite ends of the globe, but with their strong creative backgrounds and an excited desire to merge international design with traditional Japanese production methods, it wasn’t long before LINK was formed.

LINK is a unique and challenging project conducted long-distance, entirely via the internet, by busy women with a world-wide vision. Collaborating with a select global network of artists and designers, it aims to cross cultures and generations by creating beautiful and functional products, from Japan to the world and from the world to Japan.
