Making a Kimono

Chisohiso is one of the few kimono houses today that has creative control over the making of a kimono, from the design and execution, to the distribution and sale. Chiso has established relationships with trusted kimono brokers who identify and recommend top talents to Chiso. This has resulted in a critical, close-knit network of artists, designers, highly-skilled artisans, salesmen, department stores, and even consumers, with each person instrumental in the production and marketing of the kimono.
