NUNO, the Language of Textiles

11 AM - 4 PM, ongoing daily from November 12, 2021 until February 27, 2022.
Japanese Friendship Garden San Diego
Free
Free with admission to the Japanese Friendship Garden.

NUNO —which simply means “cloth” in Japanese— is headed by world-renowned textile designer Reiko Sudo, who launched the company more than 35 years ago with textile icon Jun’ichi Arai. NUNO seamlessly networks the independent spinners, dyers and mills that still survive in villages throughout Japan with a highly-developed communications infrastructure.

NUNO, the Language of Textiles showcases thirty of the company’s most iconic designs in an intimate format that allows visitors to interact directly with the fabrics, experiencing the structure, texture and drape of each one up close. The first west coast NUNO exhibition in over a decade, the Inamori Pavilion at the base of the Japanese Friendship Garden, with its authentically Japanese, yet state-of-the-art, architecture, is an ideal venue for this celebration of tradition and innovation.

The exhibit will take place from Friday, November 12 through Sunday, February 27 at the Japanese Friendship Garden from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
