Kiriko is a lifestyle brand forged from the spirit of Mottainai (勿体無い); a Japanese value that embraces one to waste nothing and recycle everything.
Long ago, cloth was hand-woven with patterns that held meaning and dyed with materials available through the seasons. In this way we cycled with the seasons, not trends. We made memories with our belongings instead of replace them with mass produced goods. When we began to lose touch with the tradition of making in this way, we stopped treasuring our clothes.
We are always searching Japan for vibrant Kasuri - both vintage and those made today in craft houses generations’ old, hand-dyed Shibori, and centuries old Boros. Our apparel and accessories display the incredible traditional craftsmanship and care small textile factories in Japan boast. By purchasing our products, you are not only helping Kiriko Made as a small emerging brand, but also all the factories in Japan that create the materials we are fortunate enough to use.
