Rami Kim has distinguished herself as an innovative and talented fabric artist. Her passion for contemporary art-to-wear, quilts, cloth dolls, bags, and one-of-a-kind home décor designs have won her international recognition. It is her distinctive use of three-dimensional textures and color and unique interpretation of traditional sewing techniques that give her work an exquisite and fascinating edge.
Rami’s first book, Folded Fabric Elegance, published by AQS, is about her 3-D texturing techniques and new projects. Her second book, Quilted Elegance, also published by AQS, focuses on reversible wearable arts, bags, and two-sided quilts. Elegant Cotton Wool Silk Quilts will be released in the fall of 2012. Rami works in cotton, wool, or silk, allowing the fibers to reflect both Eastern and Western reverence for all things natural. Centuries of Asian art and culture provide the design inspiration for six one-of-a-kind fabric projects.
