Around 200 years ago, at the end of the Edo Period of Japan and into the Meiji Period, a completely novel style of obi (the sash for a kimono) was manufactured in the Nishijin area of Kyoto. This new style of textiles included the work and designs of talented Japanese-style painters in the art circles of Kyoto. When Seisuke Takahashi discovered design books and fragments of kimono fabrics that had sat untouched and unseen for over 150 years, the concept of Seisuke88 was born.
These traditional prints are translated today into functional and modern accessories. Coated fabric creates a line of accessories that are easy to clean and can be used in many ways. Is it a clutch or a cosmetic case? You decide.
