About Us

Akiso, meaning “symmetry and balance” (in Shonan), has been created with a belief that good design is as much about aesthetics as it is about usability. 

We are a slow fashion brand, looking to adapt crafts of indigenous origin, to contemporary lifestyle. Working with artisans, we aim to make our contribution in ensuring we preserve these art forms for many more generations.

We follow the design philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright that “design and form are one” (yes he is the famous person who said “There is nothing more uncommon than common sense”). Our aim is to present products that are not only aesthetically pleasing, that also seamlessly integrate with our modern and busy lives.

Each of our pieces are painstakingly handcrafted from start to finish at every step. Ensuring each stitch, sequin, brush stroke and every other detail is done with the objective of delivering you with the best. Because you deserve this and much more!
