A new story of kimono
created by you.

Pre-loved vintage kimonos bling back to life.

Bringing vintage kimonos back to life.

Wearing Japanese traditional culture.

Welcome to ISSEN

At ISSEN, we redesign kimono and other traditional Japanese items so that they suit the modern, global society. We make it easy for people around the world to enjoy and feel connected to the traditional Japanese culture in their daily lives. Our first redesigned product is Haori* made from vintage kimonos.

*A Haori is a traditional Japanese garment worn over a kimono.

A Re-design Haori that captivates you at first sight.

Rare, vintage kimonos have transformed into Haori, while maintaining the beauty of traditional patterns and color schemes.

You will feel like you are wearing a kimono but in a casual style.

Various models of Re-Design Haori are being released.

All models feature gender-free designs.
