Such a useful device for hand sewing -- it's well made and has a very good grip on the fabric. Very good service from the store, and came quickly, especially given that it came from Japan. Very happy.

About

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
