Yuh Okano

Yuh works with several quality textiles and processes
including silk and Shibori. Yuh creates stunning surfaces
which project three-dimensional illusions.

Soft with flow and energy, her scarves are fun and fanciful contriving features of coral and sea animals immersed under water.
Yuh gained her basic design skills in Tokyo before coming to the US and completing her education at the Rhode Island School of Design. She has shared her ideas and taught all over the world.

In the late 90’s Yuh’s distinct ability and flair began attracting prominent clients. Her expertise and work was sought by fashion and fiber art. Her creations were included in Donna Karan and Martha Stewart. Shortly thereafter, TextilesYuh was born.

From her studio, based in New York City, Yuh continues to develop and define her exceptional concepts, including “Structure and Surface,” a contemporary Japanese textile at Museum of Modern Art NY. Yuh exhibits extensively in Japan and the United States.
