Let me take you on a journey through time. Back in 2017, I embarked on an unforgettable adventure across Japan for a year, immersing myself in its captivating aesthetics and falling head over heels for everything kawaii! Alongside my partner, Eric, we set up Chopsticks on the Loose to document our travels. And you know what? The name “Chopsticks” stuck with us, or should I say “ohashi” in Japanese!
Fast forward to 2020, when the world suddenly hit pause, and I found myself confined to the comforts of home. It was during this unexpected downtime that my creative spirit went into overdrive. Exploring different art forms and crafts became my daily routine. One fateful day, I stumbled upon a dusty old sewing machine in my parent’s garage, patiently waiting to be rediscovered. Without hesitation, I decided to breathe new life into it, little knowing that this humble machine would mark the beginning of my new adventure – ohashii.com.
ohashii is my way of sharing the love for handmade Japanese-inspired clothing and accessories. From one-of-a-kind garments to captivating key accessories and charming pet accessories, I pour my heart into each creation. But I must confess, it’s my adorable furry friend, Hashii 🐾, who truly fuels my creativity. With every stitch and every design, Hashii’s irresistible kawaii charm finds its way into every piece, making them simply paw-some!
So, thank you for joining me on this creative journey. Take your time, explore ohashii, and I hope you’ll discover something that captures your heart and brings a smile to your face. Your support means the world to me ♡
