The clothes are made of 100% cotton and borrow design elements from traditional Japanese kimonos and obis in gorgeously contrasting colours. Not only is the range beautifully wearable, it also makes a great talking point: the clothes are created using an authentic Japanese fabric,tenugui, which has a tradition of exquisite hand-printing for over 1000 years. And, it is said to have a 1001 uses from headscarves to aprons — but never as dresses, until now!
Noko Inc was created in 2006 by two Americans living in Tokyo, Maureen Chianese and Jennifer Friese. They began a love affair with all things Japanese, and when their daughters were born, so was the idea of making baby clothes from this beautiful fabric. The clothing range is sold all over the US in high-range children’s boutiques.
Noko is now available to HK mummies at: www.nokobaby.com
