Description

Satomi is from Nagasaki, Japan. Satomi worked in a various office environments, receptionist, admin and executive assistant roles. She learnt how to speak English while she was in Canada as a High School exchange student and later on when she moved to Australia in 2009.

“Even though it was hard time for me, I still wanted to connect to people. I still wanted to talk to people and find a way to be part of this society.
It made me question ‘What I can do?’ ‘What is my strength?’ and started developed products to sell in the shop; accessories using materials imported from Japan and hand-dyed scarves with Japanese Indigo. I find that it is something I am passionate about and something I may be able to return to the society by using Japanese inspired designs”

Satomi’s main products are her traditional hand woven accessories: “I choose this to be my first product as I could include meaning to it. The weave has meaning of ‘connecting people’ and ‘good luck’; it became my tool to connect to people and connect to core in my heart again. Not just a accessories but accessories with meaning”.

“It is privilege to show and introduce my culture to people, as when I arrived here it was a very welcoming environment. I want to give back to this community that welcomed me. Coming here and meeting people with a welcoming attitude really helped me. I want to remember this and what everyone has done for me, so that I can connect with other people and support them”.
