Welcome to Patricia Freiert's Kotobuki Designs.

“My ideal is a harmony between East and West, mind and heart, formality and informality, traditional craft and contemporary aesthetic.”

Patricia Freiert


PATRICIA FREIERT was introduced to shibori through a gift from a Japanese friend in 1988. She began teaching, showing and selling her work in 1996 and has since spent another year in Japan studying with two Japanese instructors. Her work is noteworthy for the wide variety of techniques that she uses to create patterns and textures, as well as the way in which she exploits the possibilities of various dyes within one piece.
