A Japanese Sashiko Artisan + α


    With feeling the moment in a process of Sashiko stitching, trying to figure out what the Japanese mean to us.


    A graduate of Atsushi's Sashiko Workshop (in late 2018).

    Among many other Sashiko stitching, with collaborating to Upcycle Stitches, focusing on the Sashiko Denim to make "Natsuki Collection Exhibition" happen.

    It is the Natsuki's Sashiko.


    Fabric talks.


    Expressing a view of the world is not my goal in Sashiko. I would rather end up with expressing myself as the result of dialogue to the fabric, like a form of by-product.


    I would rather be an artisan than the artist. "職人 - Shokunin" is who I am as of today.



    (Atsushi's Note)


    Instead of sharing a history of what Natsuki has accomplished, I would like to keep expressing who she is - focusing on the moment of her stitching.


    This is a debut of Natsuki's Sashiko Denim.
