Why do you like the concept of making your own clothes by hand?

When you make anything by hand it becomes a part of you and your story. I am hugely inspired by ‘Boro’, which is a collective name for textiles made by poor people in Japan, at a time when cloth was very precious and every scrap had to be used and reused. There is such beauty and ingenuity in this cloth, and I feel a connection with the women who had to grow the hemp, thresh and spin it, dye and weave the cloth. When garments wore out they were darned, patched and repurposed. I think we could take something from that in this modern era. Cloth should be valued and respected.
