Currently, I am inspired by Japanese Boro Cloth. Boro cloth is literally scraps or rags of fabric that are mended and patched together to create a new or repaired piece of cloth.
Boro cloth has so many influences that I incorporate into my work such as sustainability, tradition, history and storytelling.
Utilizing only vintage or repurposed fabrics is my way of being sustainable. I create a new piece of fabric from combining vintage Japanese fabrics and contemporary indigo & resist dyed fabrics. I do not purchase any new fabric and try to only use repurposed fabric.
