Hiroko Takeda

Written on April 6, 2011

Today I am showing the work of my good friend, Hiroko Takeda, who is a remarkable textile designer.

Hiroko is an amazing technician and artist: her skills are refined in such a way that she gives life to her inspiration, creating textiles that are innovative, elegant—and completely her own.Hiroko is based in Brooklyn, New York.  She was trained in Japan in the tradition of the Japanese arts and crafts movement (Mingei Undou).  Hiroko has enjoyed a high-powered career as a custom textile designer at Kawashima Textiles in Japan and  as a senior designer for Jack Lenor Larsen in New York.  In 2010, Hiroko went solo and runs her own studio in Brooklyn, where she creates custom designs for the apparel and interiors industries.  Hiroko also designs and fabricates site-specific works for architects and interior designers.Gaze upon some of Hiroko’s creations here.  I think you’ll be impressed–and inspired.
