Inspired by the ancient ceramic-making techniques of Japan, a visit to Arita Town in Saga Prefecture on Kyushu Island* led designer Maiko Kurogouchi to embark on an idea to “Transform porcelain into clothes.” The exquisite raised floral patterns on the fabric draw inspiration from Japan’s traditional ceramic engraving technique, while the motifs are inspired by the arabesque curves found on early Imari* ceramics in Japan.
