We met Zee when he attended one of Yosh’s perfumery workshops at the shop. The only fella in the class, he was also the one taking all the notes and asking the best questions. After class, when we discovered that he was also a master dyer, we knew we had a collaborator on our hands….
Zee was the staff dyer for Ocelot clothing for the last 3 years. He currently works as the dyer for Mr. Larkin, consults with local sustainable fashion companies, and he is the assistant for Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada. Basically, if you have a question about textiles, or just want to share in the thrill of a great piece of cloth, he’s your man. Of course, he holds a degree in textile design from the California College of the Arts.
