TALES OF INSPIRED ARTISTRY, WOVEN INTO EVERY THREAD.
The original weaving techniques and textile design used to make these unique Japanese fabrics are steeped in history. Many traditional techniques are dying out as more Japanese choose to wear ‘western’ clothes. Moniko aims to celebrate the textile art by recrafting it into a form that can be used and cherished now and in the future.
Moniko uses four main types of obi, and six styles of kimono. The distinctions between these depend on the formality of the occasional for which one is dressing, one’s age, or the time of year.
