At Origei, we strive to bring the beauty, craftsmanship and intense industry that characterize Asian textile art, into the West with our scarves & socks.
We are a team of three, splitting time and dreams between two continents. The label was inspired by our experience working with French haute couture ateliers, artisans making traditional woven and printed textiles in India and Japan, and the design sensibilities born out of our lives in the West.
We collaborate on the design and creation of every scarf and stocking as it’s tied, pleated, folded, knotted, stitched, rolled, twisted, printed or embroidered, and dyed. Each meticulously crafted article is essentially a manifesto against the onslaught of industrialized textiles. There is no other just the same. They will last beyond this year’s fashion or whim…
