Chizuko Takahashi is a contemporary designer making exquisite designs from one of Japan’s most traditional and loved art forms - the Kimono. With a firm belief that Kimonos are an integral part of Japanese culture, she seeks to bring this cultural heritage back into contemporary life through her work. With this in mind, she has created a line of contemporary products all made from the re-purposed fabric of Japanese Kimonos.
Her work builds on the idea that Kimonos are the “art of wearing” as it strives to use contemporary form to revive this ancient craft.
Her main product lines encompass a variety of cases, covers, and bags, but she also makes table runners, shawls and order made designs.
