Shigeyo Okazaki

I used to make Saga nishiki with traditional patterns in the beginning of my career, but I wanted to give variety to the design and combined my original designs of mountains etc. with the traditional designs. I also make bags. Recently, I use silk thread dyed with plants that can be found anywhere such as gardenia and crape myrtle.
