Himizuya uses the Japanese traditional vintage Kimono and Obi for upcylcling.
Most of textiles are 100 years old
which were very trend between Taisho and mid Showa period(1890~1960).
Our passion for upcycling is

It's recreation of the value of Japanese beautiful tradition in modern times.

Don't throw it away! Maybe you can still make some cute Jizos if you gather small pieces of cloth. That's the beauty of upcycling.
When we make a new product we always start with choosing textiles we’re going to use. Then we design the end product. This process hasn’t been changed for a while since we got so much inspiration as studying the old textiles.
Gorgeous and unique patterns of textile give us an unexpected inspiration and it makes our product one and only.
treasure from good old days.
We use very unique vintage textiles and combine various materials in one product. Therefore every product is different. There is no one who has the same handbag as you in the world.
