  • "Nuno is the Japanese word for 'cloth' or 'fabric.' Junichi Arai started NUNO in 1984 and in 1987 Reiko Sudo took over as design director. She has continued to push boundaries with contemporary textiles. Reiko is involved in many projects creating small runs of textiles in collaboration with mills and factories in Japan in an effort to keep alive the strong textile skills and traditions in the country and make them available around the world. Nuno textiles are at the forefront of contemporary textile design. They represent a convergence of centuries-old traditions with advanced technologies ultimately transforming how we think about textiles today. Materials such as feathers, nails, paper, and copper become key components in their textile making...
