Uncover the brands I adore.
KINU by textile designer and batik artist Yuka Ueda and Keiko Takahashi from Beauty & Soul Journey.
KINU is a brand that combines traditional Japanese wisdom and modern thinking with the liberating and unique sense of "Bali", Indonesia. Kinu means silk in Japanese, a fabric that is comfortable and gentle to the skin. Silk stays cool during the hot summer months and keeps you warm when the cold winters.
KINU products have the same the same support as silk does, comfortable to wear and gentle to the skin.They’re conceived to be comfortable and relaxing by selecting the best materials, including silk.
We value the energy that connects one person to another, and each product is carefully handmade. Please enjoy a moment of comfortable skin-to-fabric contact. May your life be filled with relaxation and happiness.
