FABRICS FROM A FARMHOUSE
Maru Factory

In the mountainous region of Nagano, textile designer and artist Tadashi Maruyama brought a 300 year old farmhouse back to life and turned it into “Maru Factory.” With a keen eye for details, he restored the wood structures, the original furniture, and even the fireplace in the kitchen floor. The traditional lifestyle of a bygone era inspires him when creating delicate kimono fabrics with a minimalist touch, and the coloring and the sewing are all done by hand.
