Kyoto Japan, my home now for 3 years, is infinitely inspirational, as my extensive collection of Japanese Textiles attests.

Antique, vintage and Mid Century Modern… they find a temporary home in my Kyoto Studio as their 2nd life awaits, reworked and transformed into handcrafted pieces for my current collection, soon to be your cherished wardrobe addition.

Exquisite handpainted, Shibori tie dye and intricate embroideries catch my eye as I scour the Temple Markets and Textile Vendors of Kyoto.

Nothing beats the thrill I get upon discovering a new piece of immense beauty and craftsmanship that are the textiles of Japan.
