This one-off bag is made by smalls cuts and bits of fabric left from my other creations. Inspired by the shape of ancient Japanese pottery (Doki), I have created the unique shape of this bag by putting together the small pieces of fabric with thousands of stitches. I have also added prints based on my drawings used to design my collection of botanical balls using a Japanese traditional print technique called Katazome.

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.
