On this episode, we head to Gifu Prefecture to meet German-native Bernd Kestler, a knitting artisan whose work is inspired by the prefecture's natural colors. Through his creations, he wants to help reinvigorate the textile industry in Gifu and the surrounding areas. We follow him as he collaborates with a dyehouse to produce original yarn with hues based on the region's persimmons. We also drop by a Tokyo hostel where US-born Delice Green and her colleagues work hard and stay positive amid the pandemic.
