Barbara Geyer is an old friend of mine. We've spent mornings in the indigo field working our devils out, many afternoons at the indigo vat together working our lives out, and many days working together as a team to give people a glimpse of Japanese textiles. She had an immediate and strong reaction to the traditional textiles when she first visited Japan ten years ago. She has an intuitive feeling for things Japanese and a gut sense of what is really good. I was lucky to have been able to work with her again in Europe. And many people were lucky to get a deeper look at Japan because of her deep enthusiasm for things Japanese that powers one of her many engines!
