Moe Kim is a textile designer who is born in Seoul, South Korea(1993), Studied Textile Design (BA) and graduated in 2019 at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague, Netherlands.
Her specialisation is in weaving technique, yet her design practice could express by a various different technique such as Hand Tufing, Knitting, printing or embroidery. She likes to experiment with new material to create unique fabric within the aesthetic. That does not only focus on its innovative function but to aim for both  to find a balance in the technology and the design features.
The inspirations comes from current social issues, personal background or cultural experience.
“I take a design concept from the interpretation of personal daily fascination. Moreover, the making in wonder step is how I begin with the creative process, by experimenting with a tangible element to play and then structure it from the outcomes which are indeed taking a significant role in the final decision.”
