Episode Summary

Handmade Portraits: Brown Rice Family
Read the full Etsy blog post.My first encounter with a Japanese Rastafarian was in the subway. My daughter pointed at him playing his guitar on the platform, drawn to his stylish attire and long dreadlocks. A couple of months later, during a conversation about Japan, a musician friend mentioned a community in Brooklyn called the Brown Rice Family. I happened to come across a soap in a Japanese store in SoHo, made by a company carrying the same name.

It was a fascinating experience to meet them, visit their world, and share a brief moment along their journey.moreless
