Textile artist Hayakawa Yumi lives on a verdant mountainside. Using cloth gathered from all over Asia, she makes one-of-a-kind clothing, bags and more. Scraps of fabric from her work are scattered all over her home studio as she never discards them. Almost completely self-sufficient, all her kitchen scraps go to making compost. And ash from her fire is used for washing dishes or scattered in her vegetable garden. Valuing the cycle of life.
