About

Forming kimono textiles into wearable one-of-a-kind pieces.

Obi Designs was born as the result of many things. Coming from a marriage of my life memories in Japan, Turkey and Sweden, it was shaped by my passion for making things.

As a lifelong "maker" I have always been most comfortable solving problems and making things with my hands. Aside from my passion for painting, I've been drawn to the prints, colors, designs, origins, and textures of textiles.

At 5, I recall learning to sew clothes for my vintage dolls with my grandmother in Sweden. She would put me to work to roll up her yarn into perfect little balls, and shred rags for her to weave. She taught me yoga, and how to thread a needle. At 6 I learned to crochet and knit. As I grew up I loved watching my mom blend her elegant contemporary style with Japanese kimonos. I recall shopping for vintage kimonos with her in Tokyo. At 14 I started designing and sewing clothes. For my 15th birthday, my mom gave me a mannequin - which I use to this day.

I didn't have a clue what I was doing - but that's what I love about creating. I learned by trial and error, and asking for tips here and there. Never afraid to play, like a musician who plays without sheet music, I sewed without any formal training. Just worked on it like a puzzle, and tried to replicate what I saw.

Whether making a painting or sewing a belt, my studio mantra always is: "Don't overthink, never be afraid to experiment, and most importantly... play!"

Excited to share my designs with you.

    I love to make and create. With OBI Designs I get to play with textiles and explore how I can turn beautiful vintage and salvaged kimono fabrics into new and unique one of a kind pieces to wear.

Welcome to OBI Designs! One of a kind. Just like you. Clothing & accessories by artist & designer FILIZ emma SOYAK.

Inspired by the colors, patterns and craftsmanship of Japanese textiles and style, OBI Designs is named after the obi belt worn with a kimono. A concept for a long time, it's finally taking shape! Designed to be elegant and artistic at the same time, OBI Designs will enhance and flatter any figure, turning any outfit into a work of art. And we're confident that when you wear our designs, you will turn heads!

All products are made by hand, with vintage kimono and hand picked fabric chosen carefully. Each is a work of art. Each piece is one of a kind, made with love and care, so if you see something you like, make sure it's yours! We also do custom orders. Choose a design, request certain colors, provide the size, and we'll make a special order just for you.

We have big plans and will be working on expanding our product line in the future to include original textile designs, OBI kids, clothing, and other desirable goods. So visit us often!
