NIPPON STYLE:
"Reviving the nation of silk through innovative textile-making"
Reiko Sudo, Textile designer

Reiko Sudo is a textile designer who freely uses traditional dyeing techniques and cutting edge technology and continues developing new textiles that "are yet to exist". Her artistic creations are acclaimed by art museums in Japan and overseas. 200 works are kept in the permanent collections of such institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Sudo hopes to design textiles that can touch the hearts of people instead of fabric that will simply be consumed. As her lifetime's work, she is now focusing on "evolved silk fabric". While protecting fine Japanese silk that has become rare even in Japan, she is also looking to the world. The program focuses on her efforts.
