kimono pants


着物パンツを作っている酒井利子さんは
出会う人の心にパッと明かりを灯してくれるような
笑顔のたえない素敵な女性です。
高校卒業後デパートの紳士服売り場に配属され
オーダー服の制作をされていたそう。
50年愛用する足踏みの工業ミシンを巧みに操り
丁寧なお仕事をされています。
不要になった着物を集めてきて解いた後
素敵な着物パンツに変身させていきます。
冬暖かく、夏は涼しい、軽くて着心地良い着物パンツを
お試しあれ!

 

Toshiko SAKAI's kimono pants
Toshiko Sakai is a wonderful woman always smiling, she makes people around her feel warm.
After graduating from high-school, she started to work in a department store in Gotemba, where she was making men's clothes. She has now retired, but she has not given up her old Mitsubishi sewing machine, which is over 50 years old. She now recycles discarded kimono by making pants from the beautiful fabrics that she has removed slowly and carefully as she prepares to give them a new life. We call these re-creations KIMONO-PANTS, they keep warm in winter and cool in summer, they are light to wear and comfortable.
Come try them!
