Announcement of wake up kimono opening

Opened on January 9, 2024!

wake up kimono is an upcycle brand that recycles kimonos from wardrobes.

Exactly one year ago, we purchased 1,400 kimonos that had no place to go.
Because we didn't have enough storage space or enough people, we rented a new space and recruited staff.
Now, a whole year later, it's finally ready.

All wake up kimono items are carefully washed before being delivered.
Of course, each item is one-of-a-kind, and it's a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.

The skilled craftsmen agreed with this initiative and repaired it with all their heart.
It took an average of one and a half months to repair each kimono and obi.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to those of you who have been looking forward to it as we are unable to stock many items.

Many wonderful kimonos and obi are still hidden in Japan.
If left as is, stains and mold will grow and rot.
That's a waste!

Let's make effective use of kimonos filled with precious memories and connect craftsmanship to the future.
I will do my best to ``recycle the kimonos in my wardrobe.''

Thank you for your continued support!
