She paid particular attention to the fabric and material, but was initially not sure how well the silk-screen method would match ultrasuede®. Fortunately, the suede material absorbed the ink well and the resulting three-dimensional appearance was quite appealing. In fact, the high absorption rate allowed Noguchi to apply the ink twice to achieve vibrant colors. This textile was scanned for use on the covers of the book and magazine.
Through this experience, Noguchi came to realize the potential of products using ultrasuede®. She hopes the encounter with new materials will inspire further evolution of the brand.
