Each Tamaki Niime shawl is unique. Hand woven on vintage looms in Japan, the shawls are feathery and light and will be cherished for years to come.
No two scarves are alike, each piece is one-of-a-kind. Made with Banshu-ori or banshu weaving style by using vintage looms and the saki-zome technique (pre-dying before weaving) Colours are inspired by nature and architecture.
We have been proudly stocking the scarves made by Tamaki Niime since our Redchurch Street store opened many years ago. Ms Niime is a craftsperson in the Japanese tradition of Banshu-Ori, an ancient process of making cotton textiles in one continuous production cycle, using time-honoured techniques like Sakizome – a way of dyeing the yarn before weaving the cloth on vintage looms.
We have an even bigger array of colours available at our Redchurch Street.
