Kimonos are a representation of the beauty of Japan. Takayama based Japanese new online shop Kimono & Co. is giving traditional vintage kimonos a modern update, making these up-cycled beautiful pieces wearable with everyday outfit.

With sustainability and eliminating waste in mind, Kimono & Co. saw the opportunity to redesign these beautiful vintage Kimonos made with valuable fabric, traditional techniques and timeless design mainly from 1950s-1980s. The team carefully select and buy these Kimonos in historic cities and create modern and easy-to-adopt clothing. After the rework and alteration done by local home- working seamstresses, the first collection, Haori and Kimono Robe is born. Full of ivory, plum and blue colours with traditional Japanese floral pattern, each item is unique and one-of-a-kind, each with its own history up to over 100 years.
