KUON was founded in 2016 in Tokyo by Shinichiro Ishibashi who is a former pattern maker of kolor. This up-and-comer’s specialty is renovating vintage Japanese clothes or textiles called Boro for its clothing. With the value of not only the tradition but also the timelessness and authenticity, it creates simple and classic design using vintage fabric.
