Tokyo brand KUON has recently held its Spring & Summer 2017 presentation in Aoyama. The brand’s third season is composed of three lines that are made of Japanese vintage textile, such as Sakiori, Sashiko (Te-sashiko), Sashiko-ori and its core fabric Boro. Sakiori is a woven fabric produced by using thinly torn garments or Kimono as weft and cotton warps. Sashiko (or Tezashiko) is a form of decorative reinforcement hand-stitching or functional embroidery, and also means a piece of textile to which Sashiko stitching is applied. Sashiko-ori is machine woven Sashiko fabric, developed half a decade ago by the Sanwa Orimono family in Fukushima. Exploring these vintage Japanese fabrics, KUON has upgraded its luxury collection. We will explain in depth about the fabrics in the next article.
