Japanese twist

Hello, thanks for visiting my Etsy shop ‘WaToYo’. I’m originally from Japan and I’m now living in the UK.

I inherited vintage kimonos from my grandmother and friends and started wearing them. Kimono fabrics are beautifully crafted and I fell in love with them. Unfortunately, many vintage kimonos have been neglected in Japan because the younger generations don’t wear them very often anymore. I’ve started creating wearable items and home decor using vintage kimono fabrics to introduce their beauty to people all over the world. That’s how WaToYo was started.
WaToYo means ‘Japanese and Western’ in Japanese. I want to create mixed styles using Japanese vintage kimono fabrics or Japanese craft techniques. I hope you like my creations. Thanks!

こんにちは。WaToYoショップへようこそ❗️ショップオーナーのさおりです。日本を離れ今はイギリスで暮らしています。

最近祖母や友人からアンティーク着物を頂き念願だった着付けを習い、着物を着るようになりました。様々な柄、色、テクニックで作られた着物や帯の生地に魅了され、着れなくなってしまった着物をインテリアやファッションアクセサリーにリメイクして世界中の人にもっと着物を身近に感じて身につけて欲しいと思い制作を始めました。着物や帯のリメイク以外にも絞り染めや刺し子のテクニック等も取り入れ和と洋のミックススタイルを作っていきたいと思っています。これからもWaToYoをよろしくお願いします。
