Momoka Gomi

Textile Designer

Nottingham, UK

Momoka Gomi’s practice focuses on hand-weaving fabric on a traditional loom. She is fascinated by the slow and evolving processes involved in transforming humble yarns into unique artworks and accessories.

Momoka Gomi

At the heart of my practice is an interest in how memory is recollected in our brain, only to delicately decay over time. I work mainly with cotton denim and silk yarn, both of which share the characteristic of memories, creating potential change in the fabric as time passes.

Momoka grew up in Tokyo and trained as a Kimono dresser at the age of 17. She studied textile design in her home city before moving to Nottingham, England, to complete her master’s degree.

Momoka describes herself as “a hands-on designer and maker” who creates fabric objects that people will enjoy for a lifetime. She works mainly with cotton denim and silk yarn, both of which share the potential to change over time as they naturally fade or become worn. She sometimes dyes or discolours the fabric after it is woven to add a distressed quality that enhances the uniqueness of her pieces. Her everyday objects and artworks possess distinctive colours and textures that speak of their handmade character.
