How would you describe your style?
We describe our style as boho, hippie, zen, beach, and effortless, with an exotic flair.
What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own?
We love the beautiful traditional kimono but wanted a modern version, while keeping some of the exotic elements. So, we created a few different kimono styles; from highlighting the traditional sleeve opening design, to our flirty cutout shoulder design, to the laid back design.
We focus on creating functional pieces that you can wear whenever, wherever, and style with anything. Let's say you are going on a trip, you'd be covered if you bring one of our kimonos with you. It is so versatile that you can create several looks with just that one piece.
We make small limited edition batches to ensure scarcity and offer a wider range in designs to choose from. We also design one-of-a-kind pieces using our own tie dye and custom original print fabrics.
What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
As Musicians, we’ve had the opportunity to travel a bit here in the States and overseas. There's always so many beautiful and unique things to see, everywhere we go. We just kind of get lost and start sketching or photographing things that catch our eye.
What is your creative process like?
There are books and loose leaf pages everywhere of our design sketches. Typically, we will plan around a theme, let's say, music festival wear, or fall essentials, and we will look through our sketches or photographs and go from there.
When do you feel the most creative?
For me (Tima), when it's quiet.
For Rick, when there's chaos.
