About

Kyoto-based French designer bringing ancient japanese textile back into a new life.
Designer Clémentine is upcycling exceptional kimono textiles into into unique yet wearable accessories.

Clementine’s process always begins with sourcing kimono & obi fabrics from local flea markets. She's particularly sensitive to the aesthetic of Japanese prints which evoke natural phenomena with elegant simplicity and modernity. Her fabric selection process is at first very instinctive. Like blossoming flowers, the designs evolve from experimenting with a combination of prints and hues. Her finishing touch finds modern accents with reflective details and transformable shapes.

Each Mikan design is unique, hand-finished, and orders can be customized upon request. *

In a world where everything can be newly created from scratch, Mikan looks at these discarded materials like witnesses of a timeless beauty. With Mikan, elements of traditional fabric evolve in order to survive our modern times.

Enjoy your visit!

The crane, symbol of good luck and longevity, is also famous for being a monogamous animal. These two here seem to have found their soul mate 💚 or maybe 2 friends flying around? 🕊️

I love thinking that in all cultures, the art of textile weaving was also a way to paint moments of every day life. Old textiles are such beautiful time travel machines 💚
