There’s nothing better than getting creative — and happy — with someone you love. The joy is infectious!
And no one knows that better than textile artist and Instagrammer Chinami Mori. Together with her 93-year-old grandmother, Emiko, Chinami has recently flooded the internet with color and love.
It’s not news that seniors can be just as fun and cool as young folk — like Baddie Winkle, the sassy, trendy grandmother who took over Instagram.
But, as Emiko proves, our elders are sometimes even cooler than the younger generation!
And cooler still? The fashions she’s modeling — namely bright, bubbly scarves — are handmade by her granddaughter.
Chinami creates her scarves using a Japanese weaving technique called saori, a free-form style that allows the weaver to use all kinds of different yarns and fabrics to make eclectic and colorful creations.
And when Chinami is done, Emiko puts on the new scarf and steps in front of the camera to share them with the world!
Check out this intergenerational team below, and the next time you have the urge to create something and share it on social media, consider bringing in a loved one of any age!
