HIROCOLEDGE by Hiroko Takahashi 「高橋 理子のヒロコレッジ」

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.

Tenugui is a a traditional Japanese towel that can be used for drying dishes, washing yourself, cleaning your hands, etc.

In October last year, Fred Perry and Hirocoledge teamed together to produce a limited edition of Sleeve Bags. Aren’t they just lovely? You can check more cool collaborations HERE and follow her HERE
