About KimonoYukiko

Sales 5,299
On Etsy since 2012

One seamstress started to create the original garments.

Hello ,

My name is Yukiko Tanaka.

I was born and grew up in Kobe City Hyogo Prefecture Japan .
I studied English in University , but I was not so much interested in language itself .
I wished to do something special technical work .

So, I entered an architectural company , and got a work of architectural construction drawing .
That work was so interesting for me , but my work was only drawing pictures. I was more interested in REAL construction than drawing paper .
However, I am a woman . It was too difficult to do the REAL construction work .

So, I changed the direction to hand works . I began to learn sewing kimono in a sewing company .
It was very tough work but I was fascinated in sewing kimono by hand sewing .

Then , I became a professional kimono seamstress . But I began to be interested in more CREATIVE work .
So , I began to create something new clothing using with my sewing skill .

At last , in 2009 , I invented kimono poncho .
Kimono poncho can be worn as a new style kimono coat , and at the same time, it can be worn as a new style western coat .
In addition to that , in summer , yukata poncho can be worn as a new style summer clothing which has Japanese taste, and it can be worn very easily than yukata .

On the other hand , I love traditional normal kimono as well .
Now I'm living in Otsu, very near Kyoto.
On my day off , I often wear kimono and join “ Kimono de Jack “ meet-up .
“ Kimono de Jack “ is a group of kimono enthusiasts . Walking around towns in wearing kimono with many kimono friends is so much fun !

Would you become a kimono fan ? (^O^)/

Thank you very much ,

Yukiko Tanaka
