Japanese textile designer Hiroko Takahashi is the director of HIROCOLEDGE, a Yukata brand that merges one of the most modern designs with the most traditional techniques dating back to Meiji Period.
Many artisans are involved in this long process of making these beautiful Yukatas, from the design to dyeing the fabrics, preparing the mop-ups, making tools and making a raw material called silk
The result is a beautiful pattern that can be seen both on the front and the back on the Yukata. Takahashi’s designs are flooded with her iconic dots, squares and bull’s eyes patterns in vibrant and contrasting colors.
