Tradition of conscious dressmaking method in Japan

 Japanese Kimonos are traditionally made from a single bolt of fabric that is about 36 cm wide and 11.5m long. 

 Contrary to Western dressmaking, the fabric is cut in a straight line through a method called "chokusendachi". Kimonos are created by sewing these panels of fabric together. With this traditional way of cutting fabric, the entire bolt is used to make a Kimono, and nothing is wasted or cut off. 

 We respect this traditional method and philosophy of valuing garments and therefore applied it to our own products, which is the reason why you may notice that several panels/strips of fabric are seamed together to make one skirt and tie. 

 We attribute this to the beauty of our traditional dressmaking philosophy and believe lends to the exclusivity of the product.
