<About LEAF VEIN>
A leaf vein is a vascular bundle found in leaves. This vascular bundle serves as a transport system for nutrients and water, and provides mechanical support.
This is a collection in which the structure and mechanism of, as well as circulation seen in the plants’ stem, roots and leaves are exemplified as fabric and clothing.
Attention is focused on the selection of threads, weaving of fabric, sewing of clothing, and natural dyeing.
Pieces are partially hand-embroidered to create netted veins of leaves using a tailored embroidery technique called pad stitching and irregular hand stitching.
SenkohSuiu expresses these surprising encounters and beauty in ordinary life through the senses of sight and touch, and puts craft art elements into the material.
SenkoSuiu is a coined phrase of Senkoh and Suiu in Japanese.

After dyeing using the most traditional indigo-dyeing technique from ancient times using indigo leaves and lye, we apply a special natural dyeing technique that has a higher colorfastness (colorfastness, lightfastness) than usual.
Since all the dyeing is done by hand, unevenness and color pooling may occur in some areas.
Please consider only those who can understand the texture of the dyeing.
