Nuf means to sew in old Japanese writing.

I was raised in Japan, where I studied textile and fashion design, and it has been my passion to work with fabrics ever since.

After spending many years in the United States and Europe, I realized once again the beauty of Japanese textiles. For more than10 years, I have been creating jewelry and other items from Japanese fabrics.

On this website, I introduce my works, the fabrics I have collected, original jewellery-making kits, and information on my classes.

I would be happy if I can share the joy of creation using these precious fabrics.
