What you'll do

<Special events > I will have a special event on 29th Saturday June in Shibuya. Shibuya Work Park Pack 13;00−15;00 For this special event, I suggest a simple pouch to sew by hands. It is very nice to put a Gosyuin Stump book in it! The price 2000YEN Japanese traditional spirit of "Mottainai": 4R (reduce , Reuse, Recycle and respect) not letting anything to waste. With my skills and collection of beautiful heirlooms silk fabrics which are difficult to find outside of Japan. Using a traditional hand-sewing method, we'll take vintage Japanese silk fabrics (originally from kimonos) and make them into a pouch that you can use to carry whatever you like. For example, if you like to collect stamps of temples , you would protect your nice stamp book in your hand made silk pouch!!! You'll pick a fabric and a style of pouch, then I'll show you how to make it. The fabrics have many stories and I will tell you what they are or so. Afterwards, I'll prepare a light Japanese lunch for us, served on antique lacquer plates and bone china dishes that my great-grandmother used to use.
