Spring greeting & Upcoming show

It has been while since I wrote the previous news letter.
In March, I was working on the hand-painting cashmere & wool scarves
in my Brooklyn studio for stores around the US.
In April, I was in my designing and creating mode for new scarves.
Taking lots of time of thinking, drawing, testing on fabrics,
and turn into something surprising.
It was a spiritual journey of the creation and new discoveries.

I will more to go for update new products on my website and Instagram.

And here I am for May.


The butterfly dream
“One day, I dreamed I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither,
to all intents and purposes a butterfly.
I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly,
unaware that I was myself. Soon I awakened, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”
-Zbuangzi, a philosopher

” Syun in ”
Flowers bloom
Birds sing
The breath of spring
Once a while,
stop their motion and be in pose.
Calm and peaceful to find the moment.
