Talk about one-of-a kind!
Creative Japanese designer, Tamaki Niime, established her own apparel brand in 2006 in Nishiwaka, Hyogo, an area known for the traditional Banshu-ori method of making cotton textiles.
She creates special, one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing and accessories, all in vibrant, beautiful colours, all individualistic, using original fabric. These one-off, unique pieces include items such as shawls, dresses, hand and arm warmers and slippers.
Tamaki Niime’s been growing cotton organically since 2014, sourcing materials with 100% traceability. With vintage looms and knitting machines, she and her creative team produce all the fabrics themselves on their premises.
Tamaki Niime believes in the free expression of design, deriving a lot of her inspiration from nature and architecture.
