Hello, my name is Frances and I窶冦 very pleased to meet you!
I own and operate miss matatabi, an online fabric shop specialising in modern Japanese fabrics. I love textiles, and sewing, and I am smitten with anything nani iro. I love my job and being able to serve other fabric lovers is an absolute pleasure. I feel incredibly lucky to be surrounded by fabric every day and call it my job. I thank you for helping make that possible.
I am originally from Australia and came to Tokyo to study 9 years ago. I thought I would be in Japan for a year and leave with very fond memories but once I had been here for a few months something told me that my future was here. I had no idea how that was going to unfold but a while later I met H, the man who would become my husband and, little by little, Japan has become my second home. We have a 3 year old daughter, A , who is the sweetest person in my life , and two little cats, Rolly and Marchi.
Over the years I have been so inspired by the incredible amount of warmth, kindness, creativity, and spirit of community out there in the blogging world and I am truly grateful to those who have shared so much. Thank you.
