Susan is a designer / artist living in New York. Since Hinaya provided textiles to her for the first time in 2002, she became so fascinated with natural dyeing and weaving, and she had incorporated Hinaya fabrics into her collections many times. In response to Susan's love and yearn for Kyoto, what she calls "a second home", Hinaya invited her for a month to stay and work on her collection at its atelier in Nishijin last November . Susan's last collection "autumn-winter 2011" including many new works she created at Hinaya was showcased in last February in New .York.

"Exhibition by Susan Cianciolo" is the second project following up her first show in Kyoto "my visit to Kyoto" last year, it showcase her Kyoto collection 2011 inspired by buildings and the sky in Kyoto, as well as one-of-a-kind tote bags and T-shirts she created for the show on sale.

We aim to dedicate this storefront as the space for showcasing the best of Japanese craftsmanship and young talents all over the world. We believe this "Exhibition by Susan Cianciolo" inspires following exhibitions, workshops and talk shows by young creators and students here at the store.
