“With my new design for Nodus, developed in collaboration with artisans in Afghanistan, I have explored the local folklore through the medium of tapestry. Inspired by the vibrant life of Afghan culture, I incorporated certain elements into the design, referencing the beautiful, traditional dresses and musical instruments, and paired these with my own whimsical style. The Afghan artisans use a very special tapestry technique that brings the design to life with sharp detailing, down to the last thread. In my previous collaboration with Nodus, I sought to marry Japanese folklore with the heritage of Nodus, which has long stood for quality and the bridging of East and West. With this new project, I hope to bring happiness to living spaces using the joyful imagery of Afghan folklore and craftsmanship.”
