KIMONO REBORN is a cultural and sustainable awareness project that upcycles beautiful and neglected vintage kimono for use by turning them into modern fashion items.

Design notes: Plum blossom, or ‘Ume’ (梅) in Japanese, is the first flower to bloom when winter gradually turns to spring in Japan, makes it symbolizes renewal. While black is usually used for a powerful image in Japanese culture, it contrasts with colorful Ume so well on this jacket, making those flowers pop out even more lively. The original kimono textile is called “Tango Chirimen.”  Chirimen is a form of fabric made of flat-woven silk. While there are various local brands of Chirimen across Japan, one that especially stands out is Kyoto’s “Tango Chirimen,” produced in Tango Province of northern Kyoto Prefecture.
