From the moment I saw Mieko’s beautiful jackets at her showroom in NY I knew they had to become a part of our store. We have since discovered through our customers what a wonderful decision that was. Each piece is unique, treasured and worn for many years.
Mieko was born in southern Japan. She opened her first store in the West Village of NYC in 1999 and later moved to Soho. She uses handcrafted textiles from around the world, most of which she designed herself, to make contemporary pieces. Her signature line is vintage sari kantha, each with it’s own variety of colors and it’s own story and each is beautifully reversible to other colors and other stories. Traditionally kantha were created to keep their wearers safe from harm and aid in obtaining happiness and prosperity, all of which Mieko wishes for you.
