Yukiko Takebe

Although a “kimono” when stored is two-dimensional, it becomes three-dimensional when worn I found this aspect of kimono so interesting, I was inspired to study Japanese embroidery. By applying the suganui embroidery technique, which is rather static, I try to express a stereoscopic or spatial world. I am producing obi sashes and hakoseko (tissue holders) for kimono.
