"My childhood dream has guided me to create something different with my life."
Bali has become Tomomi Takahashi's favorite place. After visiting Bali several times on vacation, she decided to move there in 2004. "Balinese people are friendly and always smile – that made it easy for me to get close to them. Also, they have a strong religion and great interest in art and culture," she explains.
Tomomi speaks Bahasa Indonesia fluently. She lived in Vietnam for almost six months and worked in an interior décor shop before moving to Bali. There she was introduced to furniture and handicrafts from different places such as Africa, Indonesia, and Thailand.
Tomomi was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1975. She graduated from a Tokyo university with a major in art and design. "My childhood dream has guided me to create something different with my life," Tomomi says. Together with a Balinese friend, she designs and creates accessories made mostly of cow and goat leather, and also of cow bone. "A wild and fashionable idea," the artist notes.
Through her designs, Tomomi perpetuates Balinese tradition and empowers women though training and providing jobs in a community environment.
Hi Tomomi! I want to tell you that the black, casual, cotton dress I purchased from you quickly became one of my favorites this Summer! I bought your ""Chic Ebony"" in a small. I love the extra tie straps that give the dress that extra visual interest. I have to admit, when I very first tried it on and saw it in-person, before washing it, I wasn't that excited about it...I thought it looked ""boxy"", too long and not the form-fitting cut I was hoping for, BUT, I decided to wash it and dry it in the drier for a few minutes on a low setting, and WOW!, after that it fit like a charm. It shrunk just enough to make it fit tighter in the right areas. What I grew to love the most was how COMFORTABLE it is! The cotton fabric is so soft and I always know that I can throw it on, whether over a bathing suit at the beach or just for relaxing around the house, and that I'll be super chic and super comfortable all at once. I am 5 foot 5 inches and it hits me right above my knees...for anyone curious about the length. I do usually wear my summer dresses shorter than this, but this one looks so sleek at this longer length, especially in the black. I just love Novica, thanks for everything, once again! Best wishes!

Within the past year, I purchased Tomomi's lovely ""Carefree Cinnamon"" cotton blouse. I love wearing it as it is of exceptional quality fabric and design-wise. I hope Tomomi makes other tops similar to this as so much of what is offered for women clothes-wise has too much ornamentation whereas this shirt is ""just right"". Thanks for such a lovely shirt!
I bought a red leather bracelet from Tomomi, called ""Crimson Reality"". It was even more beautiful than the picture, and I love wearing it! It goes with everything, and although it is quite durable, I was able to bend it to fit my small wrist. Thank you!
Thanks Tomomi for the 'duality' leather braclet I purchased of you. It's awesome!. Keep up the good work. Debbie.
Thanks so much for the beautiful cuff, Tomomi. The workmanship and quality are amazing. My ""Duality"" cuff rocks!!!
I now have the ""Duality"" cuff in both colors, black and brown (dual Dualities) and I'm thrilled with their outstanding quality. Thanks so much, Tomomi. You are a very talented artist!!!
Greatest tank top I've ever worn. Arigato gozaimasu!
I bought the ""Duality"" bracelet. It is a fine piece of work, both simple and elegant. Thanks Tomomi!
I bought the floral red bracelet and it is one of my favorite accessories to wear! So beautiful. Thanks!
Dear Tomomi, I just received the Leather Bracelet, 'Black Kingdom Warrior'. The leathers strength, flexibility, and thickness were designed to perfection. Your craft of leather braiding is skillfully woven, as well as decorative. Exquisite! Thank you!
I purchased the Cotton Dress ""Casual Black"" and it's such a beautiful dress! It not only fits me perfectly, it flatters my small frame! She's an amazing dressmaker, Thank you Tomomi!
Thank you Tomomi for the awesome duality leather bracelet. It is very well made and the simplistic design makes it very versatile.
The leather bracelet I ordered from Tomomi is just beautiful. The details and quality are amazing! I wouldn't hesitate for a second to purchase from her again! The shipping was quick and the cloth gift bag was a very nice touch.
