ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After studying painting at university,Saki Iiduka spent ten years living the simple life in rural Yamagata, Japan, observing the traditional ways and avoiding waste. She began creating everyday things for her daily use using sashiko, working with old and recycled fabrics when possible, going right to the heart of the art form. She now lives with her family in the town of Gunma, where she runs a cafe and studio, holds sashiko workshops and sells her own creations.
