About Lana Potels

In my life I have always been involved in art and crafts.  I have a degree in Fashion Design, and in the past created my own line of clothing. After traveling to Japan and visiting many art museums, galleries, textile museums and antique shops I became inspired by Japanese history and art. I came home with ideas to give new modern life to vintage obis and kimonos by making purses, pouches and jackets out of them. I also learned ancient Japanese Kumihimo braiding technique and now design modern bracelets and necklaces using it. People who saw my creations told me that I need to share these beautiful items with others. That is why I’m so excited to present you with modern styles and fashions based on Japanese traditions.
