*  2024 New Arrival *

Finally my dream Kaftan is finished! 
I have created my best-selling kaftan ( TAO KAFTAN )in luxuriously hand-woven fabric dyed with 100% natural dyes, including botanical dyes and Indigo. It came out just like a luxurious Japanese kimono! 
I hope you will enjoy this entirely handmade, gorgeous kaftan!


2024年の新作は、長年私の夢でもあった手織りの布を使用して、ロングセラーアイテムのTao Kaftanを作りました。従来の柔らかいコットンシリーズとは異なり、手紡ぎの細い糸を天然の藍(くすも)で染め、一本一本丁寧に織り込んだ贅沢な布です。まるで日本の着物のような美しい仕上がりの一着です。

- About Natural Indigo dye 
Natural dyed Indigo has a certain depth of color and reflects light in a way that is very different from chemical dyes.
The unique color tone of the fabric is considered as a beauty of natural color. Each piece is slightly different color from the one in the photo.

- Care: Hand wash in cold water , hang to dry in the shade.
Natural dyes are sensitive to sunlight exposure over prolonged periods of time.
Please avoid deodorants with baking soda and use a pH neutral detergent.
Note:  Black color will bleed dye when washed. To avoid damaging other clothing please wash separately.







I lived in Northern Thailand for 6 years previously to make clothing.
Thailand has been growing its own cotton, and people have been developing traditional hand-weaving and natural dyeing techniques. However, recently Thailand started importing much cheaper cotton fabrics from neighbor country, and the younger generation is not continuing these skills, putting these wonderful skills at risk of being lost in Thai villages. This is my new project aimed at supporting the preservation of these remarkable handwoven and natural dye techniques in Northern Thailand.



タイの北部では昔から綿の栽培が行われ、それと同時に手織りや草木染めが伝統的に行われていましたが、近年では隣国から安価なコットン生地の輸入、村での若者の後継者がいないことなどの理由から、この素晴らしい技術が失われる危機にあります。Maika Handworksはこれらの技術を継承していけるよう活動しているタイのアーティストと共に、この手織りと草木染め、藍染めの生地の生産と維持の手助けを行なっております。
