The theme of this work is based on the concept of water, representing the nurtures of life & sometimes can even be threatened by people at times. No matter how much the machines & technology have been developed, there’s a strong inseparable link between humans & water with the view to the reason that the human body is made of fluid water.
Among the traditional Japanese patterns that have been handed down from generation to generation, there are several that represent water in their auspicious patterns. This time, we have chosen a representative pattern from among them, the "flowing water" pattern, as pure and clear, and often been produced & designed in first-class kimono designs as a pattern of good omen to ward off evil. 
Plagues & calamities have exceeded our imagination, among this art piece, it’s through its expression of the wish to ward off evil spirits by expressing pure water that washes away deep sorrows and sufferings created. It is a piece of clothing that should be worn during "sleep time" when people are most innocently vulnerable.

Tango Silk" with 1,300 years of history

Tango is the largest silk textile production area in Japan. Tango silk continues to evolve into a fabric with a texture unparalleled anywhere in the world, thanks to the supple and soft texture created by the high quality soft water and the techniques developed by weavers in Tango through trial and error.

Silk threads, a natural fiber, are "living creatures" and even if the same operation is repeated, the results will differ. In the simple but the complex process of combining, twisting, and weaving various yarns, Tango craftsmen face the "living creature" on a daily basis to create the desired texture and feel. It is a beautiful and natural expression that cannot be woven even by the latest machines. The many variations of this expression and highest quality texture are the characteristics of Tango silk.

Silk Jacquard weaving" is the culmination of craftsmen's skills.

Jacquard weave is a fabric woven in such a way that patterns appear in relief. Compared to printed patterns, Jacquard weave has a three-dimensional effect and a luxurious feel, and is often used for kimono fabrics. It is not easy to weave delicate silk into Jacquard fabric. The skill of a first-rate weaver is essential to create beautiful silk Jacquard fabrics.

This work uses silk Jacquard fabric from "creates Ebara," a textile brand that has a factory in Tango, one of Japan's leading silk weaving regions. The luxurious fabric with a beautiful flowing water pattern floating on the smooth silk was completed by their outstanding technology.

Elegant lace woven with silk

The silk gown is elegantly decorated with silk lace woven with the unique technique of "Yasuda Orimono" of Tango." The "transparent silk" woven using the "Karami is weaving" technique is so delicate and beautifully textured that you can't help but admire it. The careful and excellent technique of Japanese craftsmen shines through.
