03:24:12 [95:365] - obsessed with vintage fabric scraps

I believe in good materials. I also believe in lasting life of good materials.

So... you could imagine how I went CRAZY at Gallery Kei where the owner Kei-san finds, restores and sells Japanese folk art fabrics. I especially love fabrics that had patchworks everywhere. When kimono, comforter cover, etc. etc were worn in, women in rural farm didn't throw them away... but added patchworks so they could continue using them... Now those fabrics look like a piece of art with their aesthetics of patchwork and stitching. They are absolutely beautiful and I could have bought the whole store...

A few pieces of fabrics came home with me... and I am dreaming what I should use them for.
