Kimono goes West

WHAT

ZI KA DE turns second-hand kimonos into new western clothing. Our centrepieces are bomber jackets and blousons. Each piece is unique and pays homage to the kimono it has been made from - A union of tradition and modernity!

WHY

Each kimono is a unique piece of art to which a whole range of artists and craftsmen contribute. The ensemble of tradition, profound history and handcrafts carried out with mindfulness and devotion results in overwhelmingly beautiful fabrics. It drives us to make them wearable in western culture and to share our fascination, joy and enthusiasm.
