Who We Are

Ichijiku (一軸) began in 2018 as a collection of 30 exquisite vintage kimonos gifted to us by a woman from Kyoto’s historic Gion district. Shortly later, the first Ichijiku necktie was born. Today, Ichijiku is best known for its Kimono Bespoke line of custom-order suiting, which combines age-old tailoring methods with vintage kimono silk to create one-of-a-kind wearable works of art.

Ichijiku is driven by sustainable and ethical practices.

- 99%+ of Ichijiku pieces are made using existing vintage kimono fabrics
- All Ichijiku Kimono Bespoke pieces are created on a per-order basis
- Ichijiku cotton canvas bags and washi paper packaging are designed to last a lifetime
- Leftover fabric is either kept on an exclusive basis for customers to use (for handmade bespoke orders) or used for other pieces
- Ichijiku offers cleaning, repair, alterations, re-dyeing, re-weaving, and other services to extend the life of our pieces

- All Ichijiku pieces are made in Japan, with supply chain traceability from the point of raw material production
- Ichijiku adheres to the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
- Ichijiku and our production partners provide safe working conditions, living wages, and are not engaged in illegal/questionable labour practices
- Neither Ichijiku nor our partners test products on animals
