Rima Day has studied fashion design in both her home town of Tokyo, Japan and later in New York City. As she was pursuing her career in fashion design, she quickly realized that her joy and passion was to be found in the technical works. She went on to work as a freelance custom dance costumer in New York City and Connecticut.
In 2010, she moved with her family to East Tennessee, where she was introduced to many forms of fiber arts and began research into silk worm threads, indigo dyeing, and quilting techniques among other crafts. After obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art, she settled into the Nashville area, working as a costume shop assistant at the Vanderbilt University Theatre and is continuing to make fiber arts on the side.
