Japanese Textiles from Tokyo

December 2 - 24, 2017


KOBO Gallery (at Higo)

Nuno —means "fabric" in Japanese — is a Tokyo based design studio known for it's creative blending of traditional Japanese textile making with a contemporary sensibility. Nuno has worked exclusively with small studio weavers and dyers in Japan, combining old practices with new technologies to create textiles that are original, distinctive, and fresh.

KOBO is honored to showcase a sampling of NUNO and NunoWorks designs from Tokyo in a pop up exhibition in the month of December.

Reiko Sudo has been the forefront of contemporary textile design for more than three decades. Sudo and her design team have offered a new perspective on the long and illustrious tradition of textile making in Japan. 

Sudo was recently featured in a textile exhibit with two other designers at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum in New York, honoring her work in producing innovative and sophisticated design solutions for transforming pre-consumer textile waste into new and usable materials, re-purposing waste from different stages of the manufacturing process to create apparel and accessories.
