<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.

Starting with the spinning of the yarn, the extraction of vegetable dyes and the dyeing of the yarn all take a tremendous amount of time. Hand-woven neckties are then created using techniques that are national treasures. Currently, there is only one person in Japan who can make these ties, a man who has been involved in Japanese folk art for many years and has spent his life making kimono obis.
After many years, this tie will be in a museum or art gallery. In fact, an exhibition in Tokyo called "100 Years of Mingei" featured hand-woven neckties made of cotton in a museum, but these ties are made with techniques and materials that surpass those used to make these ties. Hand-woven neckties made with the finest superfine count yarn require a higher level of skill and experience.
In other words, this tie is the culmination of our experience and that of our ancestors who have passed it down from generation to generation.
They include hand-dyed patterned 100% silk scarves, as well as hand-woven neckties which were designed with the help of Director Ishigami of Kurashiki Dyeing, Spinning & Weaving Studio. The latter embraces the woven pattern seen in the past and hand-woven silk threads and unevenly spun tsumugi threads used in standard length materials for kimono, with the adjustment made to achieve a modern dimension balancing.
