A kimono remake brand created by Yuka Iwahara and Rika Kogo.
She was born in Akita Prefecture and raised in Yokohama City. After organizing her mother’s belongings, she became obsessed with meisen fabrics and started collecting kimonos. With a mountain of kimonos in front of her, she made up her mind to start a remake, but she struggled. She learned dressmaking by herself. She wanted to convey the charm of meisen silk fabrics, so she opened a store at the handicraft market in Zoshigaya, Tokyo, and gained popularity to this day.
Born in Ibaraki Prefecture and raised in Sendai. She loves fashion and cooking. She fell in love with Meisen that Yuka-san taught her about 10 years ago. She is not good at sewing, but as she unties the kimono, she thinks of “the person who wore this” and treats each one with love, supporting Yuka to the present.
