Mai Textile Studio is a creative design studio based in Singapore. The studio is founded by Leong Minyi, a Fashion Design graduate from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.
Her continued passion for textiles and handcrafting, led her into the countryside of Japan in 2012 where she studied the art of traditional textile and crafts under an indigo dye master.
Upon her return, Minyi's deep rooted sense of affinity with indigo dyeing and her love for the craft inspired her to establish a studio in Singapore so that she could help keep this traditional craft alive and incorporate them into the modern culture. Thus, products at Mai Textile Studio uses natural materials coupled with traditional techniques such as shibori and katazome in its design and creation.
"My design and processes are deeply influenced by my passion and love for indigo and traditional Japanese dyeing techniques. I hope to bring to you a slice of Japan's age old tradition." --- Minyi.
