AMIKUSA

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO -

I was in­tro­duced to this Ja­panese stole la­bel through a mu­tual con­nec­tion with its de­signer, Yoko Ya­mazaki. The unique cro­cheted de­tails on the stoles in­trigued me, and I loved the ma­te­rial, a su­per­soft cash­mere sourced di­rectly from India’s Kashmir re­gion, which en­sures au­then­tic­ity and qual­ity. With Amikusa, Yoko hopes to raise aware­ness of the qual­ity of this wool while help­ing Kash­miri ar­ti­sans mar­ket their prod­ucts glob­ally and el­e­vate their liveli­hood. She per­son­ally hand-cro­chets the ends of her stoles to pro­tect them from wear, which also gives them a unique and clean aes­thetic.
