Dyeing, knitting, crocheting, weaving, embroidering... there’s very little that textile designer Josefina Eliggi and graphic designer Luzius Schnellmann can’t do with natural materials.

Tucked away in Niederdorf, Predigergasse is a narrow alley lined with small shops selling handpicked goods. One of these is Onoda. Its owner, Ena Onoda, says: ‘The fact that you have to hunt for the shop is quite appropriate.’ After all, she hunts for the products in every corner of Japan – from timeless dresses to delicate porcelain and exclusive perfumes.
