Story:

Toyokazu Ono, a second-generation artisan of Katazome - the traditional Japanese stencil dye. Born and raised in the dying company, Toyokazu developed a deep passion for his ancestral art form. Drawing out the stencil patterns with a pencil and carving them into paper with a knife - each one painstakingly crafted one by one, with the utmost care and attention to detail. After years of training and practice, Toyokazu decided to forge his own path and, in 2015, moved to Oita prefecture in Kyushu Island with his talented ceramicist wife, Miki. And today, the Ono duo creates fusion textile wonders, blending traditional and modern patterns to produce unique one-of-a-kind products.
