The first event was the Texworld New York City, one of the largest sourcing events on the East Coast, from at the Javits Center in New York, where the Sakura Collection displayed an array of fabrics from different regions of Japan, such as wool, cotton, denim, silk, and linen, each with its own story, craftsmanship, and charm.
