Asiatica invites you to meet Reiko Sudo of Nuno/Tokyo and to see our exclusive clothing made of her special textiles.
WHEN: Friday, September 30, 2016 between 2 and 4 pm
WHERE: Hotel Lombardy, 111 East 56th Street in NYC
Reiko is one of 3 artists featured in the current Cooper-Hewitt exhibition Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse.
The innovative and imaginative textiles made by Reiko Sudo at NUNO in Tokyo give contemporary energy and texture to our collection.
Using silk, polyester, cotton, paper and metal in new textures and techniques, their fabrics meld beautifully into the tradition of textile craftsmanship in Japan. Our customers appreciate the uniqueness of these unusual and striking fabrics, of which we have been making clothing for over 30 years.

More about "Scraps" at the Cooper-Hewitt:
Offering creative, alternative approaches to confronting textile waste, Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse presents the work of three designers who put sustainability at the heart of the design process: Luisa Cevese, founder of Riedzioni in Milan; Christina Kim, founder of dosa, inc., in Los Angeles; and Reiko Sudo, managing director at NUNO in Tokyo. Each designer’s practice involves innovative and sophisticated reuse of textile materials and resources, while engaging in preservation of local craft traditions. Through more than forty works, the exhibition explores key facets of sustainability, such as the efficient use of materials and resources, the preservation of local craft traditions and the integration of new technologies in the recycling process.
