View all Exhibitions

Nuno textiles was founded in 1984 and since 1987 Reiko Sudo, as Artistic Director, has steered Nuno to a position of pre-eminence in Japan and internationally. This exhibition shows how Nuno designs respond to the human form and how Nuno works with textile producers to create designs that reflect the importance of cloth for protecting and adorning the body as well as creating social well being.

The textiles are shown within an environment specially created for the exhibition, which includes an element created from Washi paper made by the young paper maker Satoshi Hasegawa. Made from sustainable sources and donated to the exhibition by the Mino City Government, Gifu Province, the paper is integrated with Nuno fabric.

With sustainability at the heart of Nuno’s production values Nuno uses traditional techniques and recycled materials, re-interpreted with cutting edge technology for contemporary life. Reiko Sudo and her design team create some of the most innovative cloth being designed and produced in the world today.
