Kat originally hails from Perth, Australia but after several years of traveling the globe she has made her current home in Vancouver, Canada.
During her travels she was lucky enough to explore South East Asia, India, Nepal and throughout Europe. This reignited her passion for textile and surface design after seeing the incredible range of fabrics made by local masters using traditional techniques unique to that particular region.
Kat was inspired to begin creating her own patterns and designs for textiles and to learn more about traditional dyeing and printmaking processes. This inspiration led to the creation of KAIKO and she now produces lovingly hand made products for people and their homes using a combination of traditional and digital techniques.
We hope that you love her creations as much as she loved making them.
