A textile exploration by Deb Donnelly developed at Studio Kura, Japan in collaboration with Hiroshi Tomihisa, Kurume kasuri 4th generation dyer and weaver, Fukuoka prefecture, Japan.

What did immigrants from Japan choose to bring with them to New Zealand? What did they leave behind? What does this cultural practice look like in the place they now call home?
