At this kimono tailor and craft store, you can watch kimonos being made and repaired, or bring your second hand kimono in for cleaning or remaking into more wearable items. They also sell hair ornaments and accessories made from kimono fabric. The store’s kimono brand is Ohara, which was established in 1924 in Ikoma, Nara. They also have a newer label, Pupa, which aims to make kimono more accessible for younger people, by working with young designers to produce more contemporary patterns. The store showcases local crafts, with visiting artisans from wood carvers and goldsmiths to embroiderers and paper artists regularly at work in the shop space.
