I’m Aims, the owner and curator of Indy Bindy Fabrics. This boutique fabric store is the culmination of so many different experiences that have lead to my ultimate happy place!
I have loved fabric and sewing for as long as I can remember. When I was two years old, my mum would create frilly-bottomed, matching outfits for me and my four besties. I watched and learnt from her and eventually started experimenting with my own questionable fashion projects!
I am an Aussie, but I also have my family, scattered all over the globe, to thank for my long held love of travel. Wherever I went over the years, I was drawn to textiles and always came back with treasured pieces weighing down my suitcase!
As for Japan, I first went 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!
Finally, when my second son – Indy – was born in Tokyo the idea for this 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
Japan is known for it’s beautiful design, arts, and attention to detail that is second to none – and Japanese textiles embody all of this!
The independent fabric scene in Japan is filled with incredible 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 artists, 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. It brings me so much joy to share these fabrics with you.
I can’t wait to see what you will make with them!
