SAI JAPAN VINTAGE began in New York City in 2020, drawing its inspiration from the traditional Kimono culture of my beautiful home country: Japan. But at the same time, New York City fashion has also helped to inspire SAI JAPAN VINTAGE products. During our time in the USA, we have seen the many ways that people wear Kimono, with styles unique from the way they are worn in Japan. We know that a great deal of vintage Kimono fabrics go to waste in Japan every year. At SAI JAPAN VINTAGE, we are using these fine fabrics in hopes of sharing our own take on Kimono culture with future generations across the world. We want to show the world that anyone can wear Kimono.
