ーデザインを考える際、まず何が浮かびますか? When you think about design, what comes in your mind first?ー
 The first thing that comes to mind first is wearable art. I love to create things that can funtion in many ways, as art, decoration, Clothing, accessories, Tools...etc..

Could you tell me the process to make your product minutely? I've heard you wash & scrub the base of cloth on wall?ー

 I start with a large table, and I lay a few material on top of it that are flexible and that the wool will not attach it self to,( for example, bamboo, plastic, bubble wrap) . Then I lay out the raw merino wool that is just cut off the sheep, dyed and washed, and I weave it flat on the table. I then apply hot water and soap made from Olive Oil, and do a series of Aggitating techniques for many hours, and the fibers stick together. When you add heat to the fibers of wool, they shrink, thus making them all stick together.

ーどのくらい時間がかかりますか?  How long does it take?ー
It can take me anywhere from a day to a few days depending on the size, color, and weave.

ーいつそういう行程を確立したの? When did you establish such a process?ー
 I was taught the basic, traditional technique of felting by a friend in Germany a few years ago all in two days, and from there, i applied it to my own ideas and have been self taught since then.

ーこのスカーフのアイディアはいつ浮かんだの?  When did such a idea come in your mind?ー
数年前、この古典的なフェルト製作の技法がなんて自然で素晴らしいか気付いた時かな。でも、実際には、カルバンクラインのヘッドデザイナー、フランシシココスタから彼の2009 秋のRFTのランウェイ用に織物を頼まれた時かな。
A few years ago when I realized how incredible and natural this ancient fabric making technique is, but it realisticaly started when Francisco Costa, The head designer of Calvin Klein, Asked me to make fabric for his RTW fall runway collection of 2009.

ーこれからどうなっていきそう? 何か決まっている企画はある? 
How is your work going on or carrying on in future? Do you have some plan had been decided?ー

 For the future I hope to keep it still a very intimate company and production. I wish to keep a limit on my production so that they each feel very unique and one of a kind. Now I have future designs for larger and more intricate pieces, I hope to work with more clothing, and to take my accessories to other places(hats, bags, vests... coats,,,)
