Toshiki and Maryszka, early work

When Toshiki and I met thirty years ago,  I was a weaver, he, a designer.
We immediately began using my fabrics to design and make jackets, slowly started trimming
them in leather, adding leather sleeves, and evolving from that.
If you had seen us at a craft show back then, these are some of
the pieces you may have seen. And a few of our "collectors" still have
and are wearing pieces from that era, the early '80's.

The red, black & white woven jacket with the black leather edging was our first collaboration.
