It has been 50 years since I started creating textile art because I was fascinated by Japanese design. Those works vary in the form of tapestries, uchikake kimono style quilts, and jinbaori samurai armour costumes. Techniques have also become diverse adopting quilts, embroidery, and cloth-cutting. I have visited all over Japan and 25 different countries for exhibitions, fashion shows, and various events, which totals over 100 events as of today. I treasure many memories meeting people from each country and region. I am very pleased to present my past activities and the latest news. Thank you for taking time to visit this site.

   It was a week when COVID miraculously subsided. Many
   people were delighted to see the 9 meter wide "Phoenix" by expressing they were impressed
   to see the beautiful work of art for the first time in a long time, albeit under strict monitoring
   such as temperature checks by Urawa Art Museum staff, the use of hand sanitiser, name
   registration, and admission controls.
   Three newspapers published articles about the exhibition, and some visitors came in with t
   he newspaper in their hands.
   We were unable to take pictures with visitors due to social distancing,



"Phoenix" will be unveiled for the first time in Japan at Urawa Art Museum. The work first premiered at the Sanae Hattori Exhibition in a World Heritage City of Krakow in 2019 to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Poland. The 9 meter wide masterpiece inspired by Hokusai's folding screen painting was highly praised by the Polish people. In addition, about 50 works including Hiroshige and Jakuchu will be exhibited. We hope that you will enjoy the works that express Japan's world-class "Ukiyo-e" with fabric. Sanae Hattori
Postscript: This piece was translated as "Phoenix" in Poland. I would like to exhibit it with a prayer that people will overcome difficulties and "regenerate" from the COVID pandemic.

In July 2019, the Sanae Hattori Art Exhibition was held in a world heritage city of Krakow, Poland, as an event celebrating the 100th year anniversary of diplomatic relations between Poland and Japan. The venue was at Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology.The Japanese Emperor and Empress have visited the museum, as an unique museum in the world supported by the Japanese government, where they can exhibit about 6,500 Japanese arts and crafts donated about 100 years ago by Feliks Jasieski - critic, writer and collector of art, whose pen-name was "Manggha".Poland is known as one of the pro-Japanese countries, and many Polish people from various regions gather at this museum to learn about Japanese cultures.During the exhibition, many people attended the workshops to be acquainted with Japanese traditional patterns, and also for the commemorative party.  We were blessed to make wonderful memories by meeting a great museum director and all the Polish people who enjoyed my art commentary sessions.On
