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.
