Using thin cotton threads, I weave textiles using a double weaving technique called "futsuori" to express the scenery in my mind. I use plant dye and design stripes and mosaic patterns. As different colored threads are used on the front and back side, although the patterns are the same, the colors look different. For example, if the threads are 10 different colors, you can express 100 different colors by changing the combination of warp and weft threads.
