Megumi Takeichi in the age of her 30’s, loves creating designs on camel coats.
She is a dedicated hairstylist who travels over the world to give the four legged animals an exquisite look.
Megumi has been coming to Bikaner in Rajasthan in western India for last five years where she keenly participates in competitions in renowned camel fairs.
This year also, Megumi has won second prize in the famous camel hair art competition.
Megumi says: “I love camels. I had not seen this animal in Japan and when I saw them the first time I was really fascinated.
Megumi learned the tricks from locals and within a year excelled in the artwork. She now takes three weeks to create the intricate patterns on the camel hair that is a mix of both her and Indian culture.
“I find it easier and much more fun to cut hair of camels than humans,” giggles the artist who dreams of giving a makeover to all camels across the world.
