About us

Our mission is to create “ties,” or connections, with the highly skilled traditional artisans of Japan that stretch across generations, tangible and intangible borders, and around the world.

Takumi Tie is a fashion brand based in Japan and rooted in traditional Japanese crafts. Part of a new aesthetic which adapts traditional craft materials and techniques to modern fashion, our aim is creating imaginative and playful, yet practical and useful luxury items for those with discerning taste. Unique textures and sensations are combined in understated, chic simplicity. All materials, including packaging, are traditional Japanese craft products.

We believe breathing new life into tradition, from the spirit of diligence and dedication to craft rooted in Japanese culture, can revive a sense of pride in Japanese people who may have forgotten their rich cultural heritage, instill motivation for a new generation to become craftspeople and serve as an introduction to high quality Japanese products and the beauty of traditional Japanese culture to those outside Japan.We welcome collaboration with artisans in this movement.
