Mabina Brooch BCF1001
Mabina is an accessory artist, who was born in Kobe, Japan. She has lived in Canada and the UK, and now calls Brisbane her home. Mabina’s artistic talent and passion comes from her Japanese heritage and was influenced by her grandmother who was very much the avant garde of her time in Japan. Her unique skill in fashion accessories reflects the heritage, purity and beauty of her birthplace, Japan.
From her studio in Brisbane, Mabina uses the finest materials such as vintage Kimono fabrics, traditional Japanese fabrics, leather, Japanese Yuzen papers, many other materials from Australia and all over the world to bring her collection to life.
She learnt the traditional “Kanzashi Flower” (called Tsumami-Zaiku in Japanese) technique in Kyoto and Tokyo and adapted the technique to some of her fabric collections. She also created her own techniques to create contemporary, unique fusion pieces.
Each piece is individually hand crafted with heart and soul by Mabina and most of her pieces are rarely repeated, unless requested by the customer.
