Jennifer Morales -- Textile Artist:
Hand-Made Accessories using Meisen Silks
Since 1998 we have been frequently amazed -- and impressed -- with the varied ways in which folks creatively use our vintage Japanese kimonos and fabrics. In fact, we have been keeping a running list of them HERE.
Actually, up until 2016 we used to have a "Guest Gallery" on our website for customers to showcase things which they had made from kimonos or fabrics which they purchased on www.yokodana.com -- or bought in person at one of our venues. However, over time we had not kept it up to date, so when we upgraded our e-commerce platform in 2017 we did not continue with the gallery.
Fast forward to late 2019: We continue to see some truly special things made from vintage kimono fabrics by a wide variety of artists and in various media. Therefore we decided to resurrect a section of our website where we can showcase some of the art and artistry of our customers. We know that many of our website visitors are what we like to call 'creative types', so we are sure that many of you will enjoy seeing how others use these special vintage Japanese kimono fabrics -- perhaps to even spark your own inspiration.
Jennifer Morales (USA):
Our newest addition to the Customer Showcase is Jennifer Morales of Morales Object Design, Texas, USA. We happened to see her work last month during a routine google keyword search, only to later realize that she was already a customer.
So, we asked her to share her work on yokodana.com and give us some background info. To see her dedicated showcase page, her info and many pictures of her splendid use of old Japanese meisen silks please click-push HERE.
