I have been immersed in design and crafts since I was a little girl in Japan. From a young age, my mother taught me painting, sewing, embroidery and pottery. My grandmother ran a knitting school and my brother, Masahiro, is one of Japan's leading proponents of traditional Kimono (see www.awai.jp). I have lived, studied (BA Hons London College of Fashion) and worked in London for over ten years and currently work from my home studio in leafy Maida Vale. My work is very much inspired by my love of Englishness – the countryside, the seasons, tea and tradition. This is reflected in the new and vintage fabrics I use to create my bags.
