Traveling the world has made me a big fan of traditional and artisanal ways to craft things in general and clothing in particular. I became more and more concerned seeing how much clothing is often wasted because of a slight fabrication error.

     Being from Japan, I always liked kimono a lot. Today, armed with my artisan skills I have acquired over time, I hunt for these beautiful, high quality traditional kimonos with small imperfections and give them a second life by crafting new apparel with it.
