Koya Hand Crafts

We create contemporary Japanese American apparel and accessories, constructed from both traditional and modern fabrics, using both traditional and modern techniques.

Our specialty is sashiko, a decorative embroidery that also reinforces the strength of patchwork.

Koya Hand Crafts sell at craft fairs and private events.
