Itoko is an established manufacturer of silk textile for kimonos using only Japanese silk, based in Kyoto. As fewer people are wearing kimonos these days, TOUSENSU and 2020 MIYAKO OUGI folding fans have been created in the hopes of bringing kimono closer to people. Decked with gold and silver thread embroidery, TOUSENSU was designed with an image of a woman who wants the original thing and has a high standard for beauty. The 2020 MIYAKO OUGI fan is made with transparent textiles called “monsha” often used in summer kimonos. With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in mind – as “miyako” means capital – Japanese traditional culture and the finest traditional craftsmanship have been infused in this product. Both fans, which have been creating using textiles that offer a cooling effect, convey the charm of kimono while elegantly decorating the hand.
