Testimonial from Australia


We received feedback from Australia on SAIKAI's children's kimono series

My name is Yuko, professional Photographer from Sydney, Australia.
I have been running my photography business for over 10 years, photoshooting at my Studio and outdoor locations in Sydney.
My main photography is for whole family groups, usually with children, for both Japanese and international families.
Actually there are many Japanese family living in Sydney, and some families request me to photoshoot children in KIMONO for their Shichi-go-san celebration.
So I have been thinking to start kimono hiring service as well as photography, but to be honest that wasn’t so much a priority for my business.
But one day I saw Ichiha’s kimono on social media, it shocked me!
Their kimono is stunning and looks modern with elegant colour and design, but still in a traditional way.

My imagination was so clear how beautiful my clients would look to wear these in my studio.
Yes, I fell in love with these designs  and I have decided to get them and start kimono hiring service straight away.
There are some kimono supplier in Sydney but I never seen such stylish kimono here, so I thought it would be great if I can offer people to share this original kimono style.

Then finally I have received Ichiha’s kimono from Japan.
We fit it it on my kid's model, and my heart was melted.
The beauty is more than I expected!
Also good thing is It suits any nationality.
I am truly happy with SAIKAI-Ichiha’s kimono and now I would like to acquire more of their collection.
I look forward to photoshooting many children in their kimono.

京都の生産現場にて京都の夏は暑いと言われますが、今は地球温暖化の影響で日本中どこでも暑いです。しかし、京都の生産現場は地下にあり、涼しく快適に働くことができます。次のコレクションに向けて、友禅師とともに鋭意制作中です。マスターは谷さん。 谷さんはこの道50年のベテランです。 彼の手はさまざまな色に染まり、まさに名匠の手です。 私の大好きなアイリスの花私の好きな色で染めてもらってます。着物を1着手染めするのに1ヶ月かかります。 この後、染めた生地を蒸します。色が定着して生地が完成したら、蒸して染めます。金メッキの職人が作業の準備を整えています。 9月末のPARIでの発表を楽しみにしていてください... きもの彩海あやめ
