We first visited the SOU.SOU Okurimono flagship store in their hometown of Kyoto, back in 2019, and just fell in love with the joyfulness of their designs. It was established in 2003 by Katsuji Wakisaka (Textile Designer), Hisanobu Tsujimura (Architect), and Takeshi Wakabayashi (Producer).
Based in Kyoto, Japan, SOU · SOU created textile designed to depict seasonal beauty of nature founded on the concept of "Creating New Japanese Culture". Whilst pop and edgy, the brand is using skilled craftspeople and time-tested materials to decorate modern life.
When in Japan, you may often hear conversations with the phrase "sou.sou (そうそう), short for sou desu (そうです). This roughly translates as "Yes, that's right", or "I agree with you". Even down to the brand name, SOU.SOU designs really evoke the essence of Japan
