Take a look inside our studio and our daily effort to embrace the value of mottainai; to waste nothing by saving and reusing everything. Here we have left over fabric from kimono that were altered into modern-cut haori styles. We are deconstructing the rest of the garment to save the scraps for another item! Keep an eye out for what these fabrics might turn into!

I visited Meisen Museum in Chichibu, where my friend is learning how to make Meisen. Meisen is silk kimono textile that was very popular among young ladies in 1920s. In this picture, she actually uses cotton. Her next step will be to dye silk and weave Meisen!
I suggest to visit the museum on Saturday! You can see the learners working on their own fabrics.
Bandanas are a Kiriko classic item. When our brand started, it was important to us that the design of a product didn’t take away from the beauty of the Japanese fabrics we were using. We love the timelessness of these simple and bold patterns against an indigo background.
