Our Japanese kimonos follow the production and design of ancient Japan that have existed for millennia, with skilled craftspeople who have trained for years in these ancient arts.
Each piece is hand painted, hand dyed, hand-sewn. This results in an incredible standard of quality.
Traditional & Beautiful
Symbolic of the styles and patterns seen on significant Japanese artworks, all patterns are designed in Kyoto, Japan by artists and curated by us.
Once the raw creamy-white silk or cotton textile is woven, it is then dyed in small quantities and rolled into a tan bolt for cutting.
THE BOLT OF FABRIC
The cutting of the kimono pieces is performed centrally on a traditional table, large in its length, for efficient and accurate cutting of the beautiful fabrics. Many of our artisans make our kimonos from home, as is tradition, so the pre-cut pieces makes this easy. The sleeves, front and back, lapels and sash pieces are then delivered to our artisans for sewing.
Reflected in each unique piece
Every kimono is created as a complete piece, making the kimono an extension of the maker herself. Many of our artisans have been making kimonos for decades.
Due to this handmade process, there are minor variations in each piece, meaning, ever item made is one-of-a-kind. This is the wabi-sabi of the Japanese aesthetic. Love passion, culture and experience is poured into each piece.
