“The first thing I do when looking at historic woven textiles is to turn them over to see the original colours on the back – they’re not faded by light exposure and can be unexpectedly vibrant, often with an abstract quality. I like how Yuri Himuro has removed parts of the weave and introduced figurative elements to an abstract design.” – Anna Buruma, Head Archivist
Collection: From Japan With Love
Textile designer Yuri Himuro creates collections that explore the unique and often surprising results that occur from interactions between people and textiles. Specialising in jacquard weaving and cutting, Himuro often snips away the surface section of the threads to create new and unexpected colours and shapes.
