Alice and I, both being expats in Japan, met each other as we were both immersing ourselves in the culture and sharing our separate experiences. This project was an opportunity for us to continue our individual explorations of Japanese traditions through the lens of DIY and sustainability, and connect with others who also shared our interests. We raised funds to create new objects out of previously worn kimonos with fresh designs.
