Talented feltworker Atsuko Sasaki with her beautiful work

Atsuko Sasaki is a Japanese felt artiste, living and working in Gifu, Japan. Her label is called “Taneno”.

Graduated in Oil Painting from Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts in 1993, Atsuko work ever since as an artist. She’s participating in group exhibitions as well as holding solo shows. Asuko’s says: “I want to create ART with wool! I want to use wool as my paint! That is my world of felt — wool art that starts with an artistic point of view. I began to create accessible artwork that anyone can hold, use, and touch.”

Therefor Atsuko creates bags, scarves, hats and necklace, each one an outstanding piece of art. "Carry art♪" means to live with art.  That’s the concept of “taneno.” Atsuko Sasaki’s art label.

"Taneno." is art for body and soul

She works with felt for 15 years. Self-taught she learned all she knows the hard way by countless failures and endless researches. She usually spends 6 to 10 hours every day in her home studio.  Her handmade felt is very strong and high quality due to a great efforts. She wants to achieve the smoothest finish and endlessly rubs and compresses wool fibers with her hands until it is as strong as it can get. Wool has a soothing nature, but the work that goes into it is physical!

When Astuko begins a piece, she first draw the design in a sketchbook and creates the pattern paper, based on the sketch. Although she creates the same design with different colors, each design is individually unique, and no two are the same.

Amazing forms and very cool design - art bag by "Taneno"

Nature is her source of inspiration. Atsuko loves the shape and organically smooth curves of plants. They remind her of the softness and warmness of wool. Images get formed in her imagination and slowly a new design is born.
The artiste lobes the freedom wool felting admits. The felt medium allows her to freely design organic forms, the awesome irregular shapes are not possible with other materials. Even unusual shapes of bags are created without any seams.  These couldn’t be done with cloth and a sewing machine.
Atsuko’s wool felt bags are strong enough to enjoy them a lifetime.

Her work is labeled and sold under the name "taneno." Tane means plant seeds in Japanese. The planted seeds eventually grow into a big tree. A big tree develops out of a small seed. Seeds are small in size but house incredible potential. This is what Atsuko adore about seeds, and that’s why they became the namesake of her brand.
