From kimonos to home fabrics: Hosoo


Hosoo – recently presented at Maison Objet a Parigi – is no news: it exists since 1688, and since then it works on textiles. But it’s been only a year since this extremely sophisticated Japanese brand – whose textiles are very well known to the luxury giants: they were used by Peter Marino for the interiors of Dior and Chanel stores, by Superpotato for the Hyatt Regency’s in Kyoto and by maison Miharayasuhiro – decided to open its concept store. The purpose? Turning its knowhow on fabrics into a series of more contemporary products, without giving up on its sophisticated, traditional way of working textiles.


One of these is Nishijin-ori, originated 1200 years ago for weaving and coloring kimonos and today applied by Hosoo on a wider variety of products: fashion accessories such as bags and jewellery, and home fabrics. Here are the newest collections, introduced in Paris at Maison Objet.
