J'adore les créations de Demi-Demi. Ce petit pochon est parfait pour mes bijoux. Qualité magnifique, c'est vraiment la pure expression de l'artisanat.

About

Japan made in Belgium. Japanese vintage kimono silk.

Hello,
Konichiwa,

I am half Japanese, half Belgian......"Demi Demi" means "half half" in French. From my small sewing room in Brussels, I give a second life to vintage kimono fabrics, transforming them into cushion covers, scarves and bags. I also use these incredible craftsmanship fabrics to embellish denim jackets.

My personal blog "Demi Demi Blog", started in 2011 is founded on my "half half" identity. I talk about cooking and sewing, between "here" (Belgium) and "over there" (Japan). These thoughts about the double culture has boosted the idea of the "demi demi" project.

The fabrics I use are silk. They come from bolts for kimono, or unstitched kimono. They are vintage and date from post war years to end of Showa era (end years 80'). I select them in Japan and transform them in Belgium, in my small sewing room in Brussels.
You will also find in my shop, a selection of haori, vintage kimono jacket made in Japan, the new must have of your wardrobe, to wear in perfect simplicity.

Through my creations, I invite you to a journey into the heart of the Japanese traditions and the history of kimono. Own a small but beautiful piece of the Japanese culture for your pleasure. I hope to make you discover and love the spirit of Japan, its art of living, and its wonderful craftsmen.
