Hello!! I am HITOMI from Japan! I DO LOVE SCOTLAND!!
In 2015, I was just a normal office worker in Tokyo. But that year, a visit to Scotland changed my life. Beautiful Kilts, Tartan, the history, Bagpipes... all Scottish culture fascinated me!
In 2017, I moved to Dublin, Ireland to study English (I'm still studying English...). Around that time, I tried to find a kiltmaking school and contact them. Nikki (from Scotclans), who is my current teacher, replied to me. So, I decided to move to Edinburgh, Scotland in October. I learned the traditional art of hand sewing kilts under her. Now I've learned how to make 5 kinds of kilts: Kids, Mens, Ladies, Highland Dancers and Military Box Pleats.
I would love to spread beautiful tartans, kilts and Scottish culture in my home country, Japan. Thanks for reading!!
