    HOSOO KYOTO

    A store introducing innovative products to the world using the hand-weaving tradition of Nishijin

    HOSOO’s history dates back to the Genroku era (1688-1604).  Their hand-woven fabric business originated in the district called Nishijin and gained renown as a purveyor of famous temples in Kyoto.  They create authentic hand-woven fabrics for kimono and obi sash as well as highly artistic works by a craftsman who is appointed as the Living National Treasure.  HOSOO produces not only conventional Nishijin fabrics but has actively strived to introduce innovative new fabrics to the international market in recent years.  HOSOO KYOTO is where their passion for producing new items to the world is manifested.  The shop is full of attractive items born from collaboration with international designer’s brands and domestic designers such as bags, pouches, cushions, table runners, chairs and much more.  HOSOO will introduce you to the world of “Contemporary NISHIJIN” whose items add quality and comfort to today’s life-style.
