chibi (created by hand indie brand, Int'l.)

CHIBI_GRANNY TOTEchibi. (created by hand indie brand, Int’l.) was formed sometime around 2003 by Yuki Nagai Morris with her friends and loved ones’ support. chibi. is based on Yuki’s love of yarn + textile, mixing old to new, and being unique. So everything is designed that she would carry, wear, or use it. Together with a wonderful group of people, she continues to build a brand with new ideas and old-fashioned handwork.

What inspired you to go into the craft business, do you still have a day job? I can’t stop making things and unfortunately I can’t keep them all. So I decided to share them with everyone. and Yes. I still have a day job. But I am in the creative field all day.

CHIBI_zippouchWhat do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them? I like the moment I finish a project is the best!

What’s the best thing about what you do? And the worst? best –  meeting cool indie creative open mind people. worst – dealing with crazy weirdos.

What are your creative influences? people i meet, on the streets, books, movies, and music. These are text bookCHIBI_TRIANGLE-BIB answers. I often see my next project in my dreams.

What’s the best advice you have been given about your business or craft practices? Don’t quit when times are down. And be nice to your fellow crafters.

How do you stay inspired? Running into people walking around the city(sometimes out of the city) wearing my bags and accessories.
