Upholstery fabrics

The collection has inspiration from shoji screens found in Japanese-style houses, and was produced using a Nishijin textile’s traditional weaving method called sha. Sha is a technique in which two warp yarns are twined when weaving in a weft yarn to create an openwork weave on the front side of the textile.

We explored textiles’ textures using different yarns, such as those made of washi paper, and altered the traditional sha technique by interpreting it in a modern way to create sha textiles with a unique transparent quality.
