"Upcycle" is to recycle in such a way that the resulting product is of a higher value than the original item. In today's world, it is gaining attention as a sustainable approach. We create various products using repurposed Japanese beautiful Kimono fabric. We make the life of people all over the world beautiful with the kimono upcycle. In edo period, Kimono has been worn for many years, being untied, washed, and tailored over and over again. And still those that could no longer be worn were remodeled as a kimono for children, baby 's diapers, and thong of clogs (Japanese sandals and Geta). The Japanese people had a mentality of valuing things because they believed that things had a life of their own. And when people have this mentality, their hearts are rich. AKIZAKURA is working on "upcycling" to enrich the minds of people all over the world. ■Why Kimono? Japanese have wore Kimono for a long time. Kimonos as we know them today came into being during the Heian period (794-1192). However nowadays, those are not used and just left in the closet. It is said that the amount of the clothes is 800 million pieces. We take over the Kimono from grandmother to mother, mother to daughter. So we cannot throw away, we cannot sell in affordable price either. Can you throw away such a valuable clothes that has a strong tie with your family? Furthermore, kimono is one of Japanese traditional crafts, and as professional craftsmen carefully make them piece by piece using skills handed down since the old time. You can feel the deep attraction by being conscious of its features and process to make. kimono described as a "wearable art form", because they are much more than just a piece of "clothing". We want to leave the kimono made by craftsmanship to future generations. ■Why craftsmanship? All of AKIZAKURA's kimono umbrella are hand-made by skilled umbrella craftsmen in Tokyo. Enjoy your daily life with these beautiful umbrella of Japanese craftsmanship. In addition, the number of craftsmen is decreasing year by year due to mechanization. However, products with human warmth cannot be made by machines. We ask craftsmen to create our products, partly because we want to support the craftsmen who put their heart and soul into their work.
