Many people have a memorable adventure story deep in their hearts. Do you know the book “My Father’s Dragon”? The main character Elmer arrives at an unknown island, and rescues a baby dragon by being creative with rubber brands and toothbrushes and other mundane things. This story of courage and wisdom is like a metaphor for the history of humankind, which evolved by using tools. Clothing is indeed an important tool that was born from the accumulation of generations of human wisdom. Each pocket, each sewing method has a story behind it of our ancestors,and each has its reasons and technique. Nanamica reflects back on this long history to create clothing for today.
