In March 2016 I traveled off to Japan for a little adventure! I have so many images to share but first I would love to share with you the best place for textiles in Tokyo; Nippori Fabric Town. This is the place to go for fashion designers, , tailors, clothing creators, seamstresses or anyone who loves crafts or DIY.
This area is so big you could spend a whole day looking around I am certain I missed so many shops but I sure did leave with some lovely gems.
This shop is full of lovely jerseys, wool and cotton.
Tomato - there are around 3 of these they can't be missed, you can pretty much find everything you need fabric wise in Tomato but they are specific. One is full off general fabrics, selection of lace and trims.
Another is for interior textiles and the last one which is 5 floors maybe I can't remember is full of fashion textiles, you can pretty much find anything here but be ware it is very busy in the main one.
This some of my finds from Tokyo, all things for YLLIN AW16 collection!!
