About the artist

Min W. Chiu was born and raised in Beijing, China. She graduated from Peking University with a bachelor’s degree of science, but Min always had a passion for art and crafts.

Min’s passion for art is rooted in the concept of transforming thought to form – bringing to life what was once just imagination into reality. In recent years, Min and her team have been making scarves with the Arashi Shibori, a traditional Japanese technique to dye fabric.

Although the process is time-consuming and demanding, Min finds joy in it because of the final product, a vibrant and dramatic scarf....Read MoreRead Less
