Since 2016, designer and founder Clémentine Sandner has been collecting pre-loved textiles from different regions of Japan and giving them a new life. She sources, designs, and transforms antique kimono and obi to create unique and functional bags.
Mikan - Japanese for Clémentine - was born from the desire to share this passion for both upcycling and Japanese textiles. With a degree in fashion design and experience as a Fashion design instructor at ESMOD Japon, Mikan offers various ways of enjoying her creation, including sewing workshops, DIY craft kits and custom orders. Mikan is based in Kyoto.
Clémentine’s beautiful obi bags will be popping up at the Biku & Co. pop-up 5-10th October 2022.
