Found these incredible headdress in the creative studio of Tokyo Wani.  The group produces oversized basket works of knitted rattan.  The headdresses were created for stage players and photo shoots.  The group also creates store fixtures and window displays.  You can see their cute latest design, kokeshi doll keychains, on their website.

Julia Astreou-Christoforou


Wouldn’t at all mind spending a few months in Cyprus to attend the workshops of weaver, Julia Astreou-Christoforou. The Nicosia-based textile designer specializes in woven textiles particularly traditional Cypriot weaving.  Tradition and history permeates  all her work bringing the past into the present.    


More of her work can be viewed  on her website, Facebook and Instagram.  Some of her items can be purchased in her Etsy shop.
