Momoka Gomi


Momoka hand weaves fabric using a mechanical dobby loom at her studio in Nottingham. Her woven fabric can be a one-off decorative piece or heirloom quality garment. She works mainly with cotton denim and silk yarn, both of which share the characteristic of memories, creating potential change in the fabric as time passes. Textiles are as individual as their owner, and each piece should be unique. To add a distressed feature on its surface, she sometimes dyes or discolours the fabric after its woven, creating a colour flow that is never the same twice. Colours are often subtle, fading textures, eroded in places to represent our life stories.
