*hanaha* bags andart are inspired on nature, animals and plants. They are hand made and sewn/painted together with great care and attention. 

I was born in 1977 in Shimane, Japan. In 2000 I graduated at the Tama Art University in Tokyo. *hanaha* was started together with my younger sister, however at this moment I work just by myself. In 2008 I moved to the Netherlands. 

*hanaha*, what does the name stand for? 'Hana' represent the chinese character for flower and 'ha' that of leaf, both of which characters are part of my and my sisters name.
