Textile artist and creator of the HIROCOLEDGE brand, Takahashi Hiroko, talks with Japan House London about her display 'RENOVATION: Kimono & Sustainability', and approaches to her craft.

Based in Sumida, Tokyo, Takahashi Hiroko is an artist whose work innovates the Japanese kimono tradition. Characterized by patterns consisting of the basic elements that make up the universe – circles and straight lines - Takahashi’s work shows the infinite possibilities that can be created out of finiteness. She aims to bring about a fusion of art and fashion through her original brand, HIROCOLEDGE. In 2020, a kimono from Takahashi Hiroko’s brand HIROCOLEDGE was featured in ‘Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Europe’s first major exhibition dedicated to kimono.
