Shinomi Seed


Take two highly creative individuals in their respective fields, toss them into a think tank and let their talents compliment each other.
Enter Shinomi – a creative collaboration between myself, Shinji Akhirah and Nomi Handmade.


Nomi Handmade (view her Etsy shop here) is a designer that specializes in creating beautiful objects and jewellery using traditional South African Shweshwe prints. Her work is meticulously detailed, yet elegantly simple and expressive. Her passion for her craft is only rivaled by her love for words and wine (not in that particular order 🙂 I’m ecstatic to be collaborating with her on our side project entitled “Shinomi”.

Shinomi means …

  • To surpass
  • To outdo
  • To endure

We’ll be exploring various avenues in our design application, from textile through to digital and perhaps even the virtual.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be involved with this venture.
