A talented and brilliant textile artist, Mieko Mintz, was born in Japan, but now makes her home in New York City. Wedding gorgeous multi-print Indian fabrics with the aesthetic of her native country, she creates jackets, coats, and other clothing out of kantha cloth, bamboo, and silk. Wonderfully satisfying to own and to wear. Whenever I put on one of my own Mieko jackets, I get a major lift!
