One of a kind garments made of vintage sari, hand stitched kantha
Originally from Kyushu, Japan, Mieko Mintz uses handcrafted textiles from around the world to make contemporary pieces. Her signature line includes jackets made from vintage sari, each with its own variety of colors and its own story.
Mintz's designs are made into kantha throws in West Bengal, which she then cuts to fit her jacket designs. Her focus is a unique line that is not only comfortable, but also contemporary, sophisticated and timeless.
Traditionally, kantha textiles were supposed to help keep their wearers safe from harm and aid in obtaining happiness and prosperity.
Cuttings left over from making the jackets are recycled one more time to create hats, bags, and jewelry.
