WHAT IS SUTAI BU?
SUTAIRU MEANS STYLE IN JAPANESE.
BU MEANS FABRIC IN CHINESE.
I am 1/16 Japanese, and the rest Chinese. I was born in Los Angeles, raised in Hong Kong, and went to college for Fashion Design with an emphasis in Sustainability at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City.
TO SHARE. TO PROMOTE.
TO EDUCATE AND DEMONSTRATE.
Sutai Bu was established as a platform for me to share my love for nature through the art and illustrations I create, to promote a lost Japanese cultural art that is zero waste focused, called Furoshiki, and to educate and demonstrate how to transform and upcycle excesses of personal consumption through products we use daily and love to wear around as a fashion statement. And each and every product is designed with a conscious mind, environmentally sourced and produced. In combination, our products represent each stages within the cycle of regeneration, passing on a reminder to appreciate our planet, and share our environmental responsibility through the interaction with our products.
Making products and leaving behind minimal to zero waste is Sutai Bu’s ultimate goal in designing a product. This discovery tells us the power of geometric shapes, how squares and rectangles for sure have a lot to offer.
