This special vintage collection of Japanese Sukajans are a replica of 1950s Japanese Souvenir Jackets. Originally created for American GIs to bring home after the post-war occupation of Japan. Made to be worn on both sides as reversible, both sides showcase beautiful Japanese embroidery and designs. Carefully selected from Japan, these jackets will still look good after 30 or 40 years down the road.
Sakiori is a traditional Japanese technique of rag weaving. Fabric strips are cut finely and woven together. Like the word 'Mottainai', which means that the old can be made new and everything can be used again. The Sakiori technique reuses fabric too small to be sewn, instead of throwing them away. We added these little details to make this cap distinctly Kiriko. Whether you’re running an errand or going to the game, wear it, love it, hand it down. Add another chapter to its story: Yours.
Another collaboration with our talented friends in LA, @prospectiveflow. Using natural fabrics to craft a relaxed line that blends the ease of Pacific Northwest with the traditional style of Japan. Garment-dyed with colors inspired by Japan, this loose-fitting and easy to layer jacket is perfect for the fall. — View our lookbook for the norato in the link above👆
