Junko Tsukizoe

I use cotton threads made from Egyptian cotton and turpan cotton 100 – 120 dyed with plant dye and plain weave them. I aim to make structural universality with the warp, and weave in the scenery in my mind with the weft. I want people to feel the sounds and smell of nature when wearing my kimonos.
