Introducing our Printed Ainu Jacket collection! At Kiriko, we strive to create new pathways by interweaving the culture of the West and East.
We've stylized these jackets with our own designs inspired by traditional Ainu patterns. These maze-like patterns are a symbolic part of the Ainu religion and culture as it was believed that these maze designs could trap evil spirits or protect you against the evil spirits all-together.
For more information about Ainu, the indigenous people of Japan, please read our blog post here.
The Ainu design on the back of the jacket consists of three layers of medium: screenprinting, appliqué, and embroidery.
Using quality military jackets as the base, we've custom dyed using traditional Japanese colors and transformed these jackets into truly unique pieces that are designed just for you.
