Tomoyo is a knitwear designer and textile artist.
She specialised in knitting and weaving during her BA in Tokyo and London. After graduating with a BA in London, she went to Italy to develop her career as a knitwear designer.
Materials, especially yarns, are significant for Tomoyo, as the texture and colours of yarns are the first inspiration point to make her creations. Depending on the yarns, she decides what kind of techniques and combinations of colours and materials she uses for her textiles.
During her MA at the Royal College of Art, she explored making original yarns with various materials and combining knitting and weaving techniques to make mesmerising textiles for one-of-a-kind garments.
