My name is Emilia, a sewing enthusiast and sustainability freak calling Tokyo home.
I started this blog to chronicle my sewing journey, patterns I love, projects I’m doing, and share what I learn along the way. My reasons for sewing are mostly ethical, as I don’t want to support a capitalist system that exploits the workforce and the environment, but I also don’t want to spend a fortune to get dressed.
I’m a proud queer non-binary person. I use they/them pronouns, and not a day goes by without me engaging on some political discussion on Instagram.
I also run a small business which upcycles old kimono using a zero waste approach. Check it out if you have the change!
Some fun facts about me:
- I hate the color orange and celery with passion
- I have an extensive collection of small plates
- I am obsessed with labeling items
Hope you have fun reading my blog, and see you soon!
