This very special one-off handwoven wall hanging is made by kuzu yarn from a Japanese farm and hand spun linen from Slovenia. All yarns are hand dyed with dip dyes and ikat dyes using natural dyes.
One of the oldest handwoven fabrics in Japan is called “TAFU”, which is traditionally woven using Kouzo (paper mulberry), Fujizuru (wisteria vine), Kuzu (Japanese arrowroot), Cyoma (ramie), amongst others. These yarns are made by using fibres from the stem, under the hard external bark. The extraction requires a lot of processing and for this reason, TAFU almost disappeared in Japan.
The branch can be easily removed and replaced as the tapestry is not attached to it.

Emi's products are all hand-dyed with natural dyes. Compared to synthetic dyes, natural dyes tend to fade more quickly and may rub off on your clothes.

Emi Fujisawa is a Japanese textile artist based in Oxfordshire, England specialized in hand weaving with natural materials and natural dyeing. She is also a ceramic artist / potter.
While working at her art in England, she realised that she felt strongly identified with some of the traditional Japanese philosophies, specially “Wabi-Sabi”, which is a world view centred on the acceptance of transience and finding beauty in imperfection, and likes to observe the effects of time and the elements of the nature over the objects who give them an imperfect beauty.
She is also influenced by the study of traditional textiles, techniques and materials from around the globe, inspired by Confucius words, who said: “We can learn new things from the past”. She loves to explore different countries and find traditional materials, techniques and ideas. She has developed her own style to express her art which is based in a Japanese identity with European influences.
