  • Japanese curry lover
  • I have been living abroad for over 15 years now. It seems that the people who I met in Europe tend to think all Japanese people could make Sushi and they don’yn`t know any other Japanese dish besides Suishi. Anyways, I was often asked to make Sushi or to teach them how to make it. To be honest, I had never made Sushi before I left Japan. So I always followed some recipes o [続きを読む]
  • Just a pair of comfortable pants...
  • In my previous blog I wrote about the Hmong Sarouel Pants. When I started, I didn`t know how to make a pattern. But over many yea
    rs, I have sewn curtains, cushion covers and bags just for myself or for my friends.I was brought up by my grandmother who could
    sew EVERYTHING by herself. She also used to remake her clothes or my mother`s clothes into a skirt for me or cushion covers or [続きを読む]

    ven know how to make patterns for clothing. So I asked one of the Hmong mothers to teach me how to make the Hmong Pants. I t [続きを読む]
  • Old Meets New!
  • Two weeks ago I visited the small factory and show room for the hand-woven fabric company "TOR BOON, Hand by Boon" in a
    suburb of Chiang Mai. I sometimes go there to buy balls of cotton yarn. They dye the yarn in many different colors, mostly cozy so
    ft tones, and they hand-weave fabrics to produce their own brilliant modern but long-lasting design products which is made with th
    e fabric.I love how [続きを読む]
  • Forest drops
  • A new body-and-soul-friendly accessory "Forest drops". I used dead-stock wooden beads and cotton ribbon to make a neckla
    ce that leaves a gentle touch on your skin. I am always inspired by the Swedish forest which is a little dark and chilly, as well
    as the fashion from the Viking era.You cannot miss the back view,too!It will be on sale at a small "Yoga and Massage tour&quo

  • Cycles per round.
  • A couple of months ago, my friend and I were chatting over Skype. She was selling some of our products at her place and some mark
    ets in Sweden.She told me that it would be nice if there was some accessories which were made from recyclable materials. But...per
    haps might be difficult. Her comment stuck in my mind.I actually have been trying to make"skin-friendly" accessories sin

  • With Hmong mothers.
  • All of our clothing and products are sewn by young Hmong mothers and myself.In the beginning, I met one young Hmong mother who liv
    ed a forty-minute motorbike drive away from the city center of Chiang Mai in a suburb. At that time, she rarely could get any payi
    ng work because she didn't have good sewing skills. So most days, she stayed at home and took care of her three children as
