After travelling in Indonesia for 3 weeks in September 2017, I couldn’t stop thinking about travelling more and exploring new countries, cultures and textiles.
A few months later, it was still on my mind and one morning I decided to book a flight to Thailand for September 2018.
Fast forward and a year since Indonesia has passed, I got my diploma, graduated from Chelsea College of Arts with a BA in Textile Design, I spent the summer with family and friends and on September the second I was on a plane starting my adventure.

A “textile research trip” to South East Asia - to do textile workshops and learn more about traditional techniques.
The trip lasted exactly 100 days. I visited 7 countries, I was on 21 flights and 5 buses, I spent a lot of time on scooters, cars, boats and motorbikes.
I did 21 textile workshops in weaving, dyeing, embroidery, batik, bamboo weaving, macrame, embellishment and spinning.
I have been writing a blog about everything I learnt and saw, you can find it under the journal section on my website.
