Designing textiles and crafting items using motifs of the plants and animals of Okinawa.
I started making objects from the time I first ventured into the art field, and launched my creative career under the name of “MIMURI” while I was in college in Tokyo. I returned to Ishigaki-shima in order to re-examine my roots when I was 26. I realized the abundance of its nature, felt gracious, and began to sketch the plant and animal life of the island. Even since moving my work to Naha, I strive to maintain this style while designing textiles. I have created bags, wallets, accessories and more that give shape to the motifs of Okinawa that I love so much, allowing them to be carried around in daily life.
