Global African Design Meets MONO JAPAN

Maki & Mpho exhibited a new collection of textile at MONO JAPAN - Japanese craft & design fair that took place from 2nd February to 5th February, 2017 at Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy in Amsterdam. We collaborated with a manufacturer of the Banshu Textile (woven textile that uses dyed yarn traditionally produced in Hyogo prefecture) to realize modern African design uniquely designed by our Creative Director / textile artist Mpho Muendane.

Maki & Mphoは、2017年2月2日から5日までの4日間、オランダ・アムステルダムのロイドホテルにて開催された、日本の職人技・工芸・デザインの展示会「MONO JAPAN」にて、同社南アフリカ人デザイナーが手がける独自開発の柄を、伝統の播州織物で表現したテキスタイルの展示販売会を開催しました。
