In Tamatebako handmade, we use obi(belt) of Nishijin brocade, which is traditional Japanese beauty, to make bags one by one by hand.
Since ancient times in Japan we have inherited kimonos from mother to daughter, from daughter to that child carefully.
However, with the modern Western style wearing, most of the Japanese casual clothes became a western style clothes.I would like to get familiar with young people and overseas people by making valuable brands that have been cherished carefully to modern bags tailored to modern fashion and to know the splendor of traditional Japanese technology I will.
The material of the belt is a fine silk thread.Some gold and silver threads are using genuine gold leaf or platinum foil, which can be called “textile jewel”.
Since there are no two strips of the same pattern, the same product cannot be made.
Why don’t you add one “jewelry-like bag” in your world to your coordination?We use vintage belt and kimono, to create hand bags, accessories, fashion items etc…
Kimonos and bands in Japan, also called artworks in the world.It is gorgeous and elegant and many people wants to wear it everyday.
However,There are many people feeling that “dressing Kimono is tough! Cramped! and difficult to find place to go!”
Here I have launched Tomatebako from the thought of eliminate that barrier,I would like to take it in ordinary life to enjoy fashion,I handled each one carefully to design to match modern fashion with a new sense.
While studying western clothing history, textiles, composition studies, judgment, design science at university in Tokyo,I engaged in design and production of event costumes etc.
After working for a wedding dress production company,I manage dresses and costume production business.Costumes such as celebrity costumes, dramas, commercials etc are produced.
One day, when remaking a kimono or a belt which has been stored in a chest of drawers and going out,a lot of good reactions are received and a request for production is received.Knowing that many people want to make use of the kimono and belt of memories,To be helpful to people,I started “Tamatebao handmade”.
