Thank you for your interest in Wafu Works. We opened our Kingston Beach shop in January 2001 specialising in Japanese fabrics for quilters and other textile artists but also with an eclectic range of Japanese antiques and new and old craft supplies.  Our Japanese base is in Ehime prefecture on the island of Shikoku and most of the items you’ll see here and in our shop come from the Shikoku and Kansai regions of western Japan.

As well as running Wafu Works I’m a collector of old Japanese textiles and when I have time I’m also a stitcher with a particular interest in the traditional patterns and methods of everyday household sewing and fabric recycling in old Japan.I’m passionate about Japanese textiles and the history that they tell and am very happy to be able to make these special fabrics available through Wafu Works.

I hope you enjoy looking through our site and will feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you have.
