Request for donations

KnitCafe LLC is now accepting donations from the public.
Donations will be used to create a database to pass on each person’s words and the almost-lost cultural traditions to the next generation, dispatch researchers to places where the traditions are being passed down, and carry out activities to pass them on.

We want to inherit and pass on the oral traditions of Japan to the next generations.
Traditions passed on within families and small communities usually won’t be recorded anywhere.
However, some of these traditions have been inherited orally. The case of Kimono is one of them as well.

My grandma used to tell me about the meanings Kimonos hold; to wish peace and happiness.
Kimonos can become a lucky charm, in altered forms, still owning the wishes for peace.
We want to deliver peace and happiness to people in the world by up-cycling Kimonos.
