I’m Aims, the owner and curator of Indy Bindy Fabrics. This fabric store is the culmination of many different experiences that have lead to my (and hopefully your) ultimate happy place!
I’ve loved fabric and sewing for as long as I can remember. When I was two years old, my mum would make matching, frilly-bottomed outfits for me and my besties. I watched her over the years and eventually started my own sewing journey!
I’m an Aussie, however I have family scattered all over the world, who sparked my love of travel. Wherever I went, I was drawn to textiles and always came back with treasured pieces in my suitcase!
As for Japan, I first lived there as a 16 year old exchange student. Little did I know that was the start of a life-long love of my second home! Japan would draw me back time and again.
When my second son – Indy – was born in Tokyo the idea for this fabric shop was also born. So it seemed right to give the store the nickname his big brother gave him “Indy Bindy”.
Indy Bindy Fabrics
Made in Japan
The independent fabric scene in Japan is filled with amazing artists. I am so grateful that I can support them and share these hard to access, indie designs with you!
Each of the designers at Indy Bindy Fabrics are true artisans, filled with passion, who pour their heart into their work.
I know each designer personally – some live in the heart of Tokyo, others in the mountains of Aichi Prefecture or seaside where they hand print their fabrics at their live-in atelier.
Their individual processes and style are each so unique, resulting in extraordinary fabrics.
I can’t wait to see what you will make with them!
