When one of the infinite appeared
A dream rises to the sight of reality
Because you wake up and live the beauty
Leaving in a boat, swaying on the shining waters
Quietly smiling at you and me
Where we go beyond eternity
When I see you in the reflection of the dawn
The scent of nectar is in the air
I descend to the place I seek with a swaying motion
I sink my body into the shining earth
When the joyous circle is dancing

These Japanese wool garments are hand-spun and hand-knitted. Rare Japanese wool is shorn at a farm and washed by hand to remove dirt and oil. Hand-washing does not remove too much oil from the wool, keeping it warm. Each garment is made from the wool of one sheep, thus retaining that sheep’s unique texture. The garments are made by Kana Ushijima, who creates beautiful hand-spun wool yarns, and Tomoko Kodama, who hand-knits the unique yarns with precision. Cashmere has excellent heat retention properties. Cashmere garments are also very light and give everlasting comfort. The cashmere from Inner Mongolia, considered to be of the highest quality, is spun in Japan and knitted with a seamless ‘whole garment’ design.
We are pleased to present an exhibition of “Japanese wool and Cashmere garments”. These precious garments are a collaboration of nature and people and will grace us with everlasting love.
