The world famous scarf hall, on the ground floor of the famous art deco Liberty building, has started to sell HIKARU NOGUCHI’s latest scarves, hats and gloves since last week. Hikaru commented: “It’s amazing to see my collection at Liberty in London, which is on of the best scarf department in the world. They serve knowledgeable customers who care about details of the design and the materials of products. I can feel that individuality and beauty which come from the uniqueness of the collection are more important than commercial trends when I walk around Liberty.”

This year marks 20 years of Hikaru Noguchi’s collections. Every collection has experimented with new colours and techniques, building up a formidable treasure chest of experience to incorporate into the next collection, and helping to create beautiful, charming, quality products. Hikaru looks forward to another 20 years or more of creative production.
During the past 20 years, her relationship with Wales has been one of the most important elements in Hikaru’s design work. From this relationship, Hikaru introduced her Welsh Vintage Flannel tie collection to join her popular signature knitted ties. Over 20 years ago, Hikaru was awarded a textile research grant which she used to visit textile mills all over Wales. That led to the discovery of the charm of working with rural textile mills and the slow, careful and beautiful production style which they represent. This has become Hikaru’s basic design and production standard for her collections.
In recent years, Hikaru has forged deep relationships with the mohair industry in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, where over 70% of the world’s mohair is produced, visiting mohair goat farmers and learning how to the finest mohair is produced. She has been inspired by the sights of thousands of mohair goats in the endless empty dry African landscape, and cried and laughed with the farmers and farm workers at their stories of their struggles to produce the world’s finest mohair. There is a great feeling of satisfaction in knowing exactly where the raw mohair comes from, and that it is produced in an ethical and sustainable way.
Ethical and sustainable production is important, and infuses the way we plan and produce our products. But having fun, sharing jokes and cups of tea are also part of our philosophy, and we hope that the fun and the love for what we do shine through in our products just as much as the quality of the materials. We have no huge warehouses packed with stock. Every order is produced individually, paying attention to the needs of the particular customer.
And now Hikaru has added a new feature to her creative work – a Decorative Darning service. The aim is to up-cycle customers’ old hikaru noguchi products, so there is no more need to worry about moth holes! (Details of the service are available on request).
