The handmade looms are easy to make with materials you can find around the home, such as cardboard, paper, pins, wood, and nails.
Harumi Kageyama graduated in art and design at the Nihon University College in Japan. After initially pursuing an editorial career, working for magazines and journals in a mixture of fields, Harumi decided to return to her first love and began designing and making handcrafted items in cloth, wires and more. Her work focuses on simple materials such as wool, fabric and driftwood, and she places great value on designs that are simple and sustainably sourced.
Harumi now writes a successful blog in Japan and runs regular workshops on weaving and other crafts. She is also the author of several textile and handmade, eco-friendly interior design books published in Japan, and her work is slowly becoming recognized worldwide.
