About Us

Welcome to KINTSUGI Apparel

Welcome to KINTSUGI Apparel, where every stitch tells a story of resilience, self-expression, and the beauty found in imperfection. We're more than just a clothing brand—we're a community united by a shared belief in embracing life's challenges and celebrating the strength found in vulnerability.

Our Philosophy

KINTSUGI Apparel draws inspiration from the ancient Japanese art of kintsugi, where broken pottery is repaired with gold, transforming flaws into radiant symbols of resilience. We believe that life's imperfections are what make us unique, and our garments reflect this philosophy by embracing the beauty of individuality and self-expression.

Our Approach

  • Embracing Imperfection: Each garment we create is a canvas that tells a story of growth, resilience, and the journey towards self-discovery. From intricate designs to carefully chosen materials, every detail is crafted with intention and purpose.
  • Finding Strength in Adversity: Like the delicate pottery repaired with gold, our clothing symbolizes the strength found in embracing life's challenges. We believe that setbacks are not obstacles but opportunities for growth, and our designs embody this ethos of resilience.
  • Fostering Self-Expression: Fashion is more than just clothing—it's a form of self-expression. At KINTSUGI Apparel, we empower individuals to express their unique identities through our thoughtfully crafted designs and collections.

 About the Founder

I'm Yuki, the founder of KINTSUGI Apparel. Growing up with Japanese customs due to my mother's heritage, I developed a deep connection to Japanese culture and traditions. From a young age, I dreamed of immersing myself in the rich artistic traditions of the Land of the Rising Sun. Despite facing doubt, adversity, and setbacks, I remained steadfast in my pursuit of this lifelong aspiration.

Through perseverance and determination, I finally achieved my dream of moving to Japan, where I now operate KINTSUGI Apparel from a small studio apartment. My journey mirrors the ethos of KINTSUGI Apparel—where resilience, perseverance, and the celebration of imperfection are at the heart of everything we do.
