Thank you for your interest in Wafu Works. After living in Ehime Prefecture on the island of Shikoku for almost 10 years  I opened my  Kingston Beach shop in January 2001 specialising in vintage Japanese fabrics for quilters and other textile artists.  .

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.
