Nature and Art in everyday life for you
Genesis of Atelier Shimura
Fukumi began weaving with pongee yarn dyed with plants’dye in 1955, influenced by her mother, Toyo. Since that time, she has made a profound study of the beauty of tsumugi (pongee) kimono, which Japanese peasant women traditionally wove for everyday use, and she has developed her own original style of art.
