    Yumiko Kawai’s embroidered patterns consist of a lot of ‘circles’. After she decides the location, she begins to sew the circles, in her own style. Although she sews several pieces of cloth at a time, the fineness of the seams differs from one piece to another, and each one of them has its own charm. Because the pieces of cloth are embroidered so many times that they are tightly compressed, rise up, and eventually form some sort of mountain of fabric.
