The Story

My name is Yuh Okano. I started to work as a textile Shibori Artist in Japan- I create textiles with very unique organic shapes, taking inspiration from the skins of plants, creatures of the ocean, and flowers.My textile art work, begins to integrate into functional and wearable scarves. I aim to produce scarves that create a tactile sensation, that are soft and comfortable to wear and joyfully capture your eyes.

My textiles journey continues to explore hand made techniques alongside fibre technology, with all cultural ethics from my roots Japan in mind.
