My friend Rebecca spent the afternoon in my studio photographing some (er hundreds) pretty little details for the book while I worked on the text. It will be a little while longer before it’s done, but it feels so good to be making progress.
Oh and hopefully I can now say this without jinxing myself, but I’m trying to post everyday in November again. I’ve missed this space.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
