005 Kofu Waistcoat | Fuji SS22
SS22 Fuji slow fashion collection
Named after the Japanese name for Wisteria, which is one of Emi’s favourite flowers - and part of her name, the collection is hand dyed with English Madder and Indigo.
Emi uses antique and vintage natural fabrics, organic natural fabrics and hand-woven natural fabrics for her collections.
Focusing on these materials made by sustainable methods, she honours the value of traditional textiles and hand-woven cloth – simultaneously she imagines the history and background of the cloth that she brings new life in the shape of her garments.
The cloth used have diverse origins, being found in antique/vintage markets in England, Europe and Japan on her textile research trips. Emi also hand weaves some cloth, using special materials, such as Kibiso silk yarn and hand spun linen yarn, for instance.
Emi also likes making the ceramic buttons by hand, herself.
Only vintage natural fabrics, organic natural fabrics, hand-woven natural fabrics, and traditional textiles are used in the collection. Focusing on these materials made by sustainable methods, Emi honours the value of traditional textiles and hand-woven fabrics while she imagines the history and background of these vintage fabrics as she brings them to a new life as part of her garments. All her garments are made with a highly detailed finish - also on the inside, with special details left to be seen by the wearer in such a way that it lets you dream about the origins or how they were made.
Emi's collection also has a focus on slow fashion and fair trade as opposed to mass production. Based in this concept, her garments are all carefully handmade and hand-dyed in Oxfordshire where she is based.
The collection is made to order and since Emi sources her fabrics from antique/vintage markets she may not be able to have exactly the same fabric shown on the pictures, but makes your ordered garment with fabrics of similar value and characteristics.
Delivery time is usually 2-3 weeks.
