THE MONIKO STORY IS A STORY IN THE MAKING
MONIKO CELEBRATES THE BEAUTY OF THE PAST
TAKING VINTAGE KIMONO FABRICS AND RECRAFTING INTO CLUTCHES AND ACCESSORIES: EACH ONE CONTAINS A SLICE OF JAPANESE HISTORY.
WE HONOUR THE RICH HERITAGE OF TEXTILES UNIQUE TO JAPAN
Artisans refined their special craft over the centuries: the results of their skill and perseverance can be seen in the sublime clothes that they created.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE TODAY.
Celebrating and encouraging artisans of today: the beautiful people making Moniko products at the self help groups and NGOs in SE Asia.
MONIKO RESPECTS THE BEAUTY OF THE KIMONO AND IT’S WEARER.
The quality of the fabrics, the subtle changes in pattern and texture as it moves. The meanings of the traditional design motifs used to decorate the fabric.
The gracefulness of the women who wore them years before now.
FROM THEIR HANDS TO YOURS
The untold part of the Moniko story, is your story.
The fate of the fabric now lies in your hands.
We trust you will honour the humble traditions and treasure it, as did those before you.
