Following the devastating 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, The Inoue Brothers visited Tohoku in the North East of the country, one of the most badly affected sites, to visit some of the locals and get to grips with life after such a momentous event. In response they set-up their ongoing “Made in Tohoku” collection, creating clothing with local artisans in the hopes of keeping specialist makers alive in the area. In this beautiful short film they visit friends and collaborators including an Ai-Zome dyeing specialist, a Kiri-Bako box maker and a traditional Washi paper maker, all of whom have plied their trade for decades. A must-watch.
