Shino Suzuki

 Japanese textile designer Shino Suzuki graduated from The University College in Falmouth in 2009. I was immediately drawn to the use of colour and embroidery in her quirky soft sculptures, inspired by traditional costumes and customs from all over the world.

 I discovered Shino's unique work via Selvedge Magazine in 2009, when she won a New Designers Award.

 You will find three of Shino's one-of-a-kind handmade pieces, The Lady and the Bird, Alright, and Edward, in the Kickcan & Conkers shop.
