Designer, Niime Tamaki started her own brand “tamaki niime” in pursuit of establishing a new interpretation and furthering the developments for the traditional Banshu-ori. In 2006, she established “tamaki niime Co., Ltd.” and settled in Nishiwaki, Hyogo, an area known for its Banshu-ori, to create her original fabric for clothes. Tamaki Niime subsequently opened an atelier shop and started to produce and roll out our original shawls in 2008. They started to grow cotton organically in early 2014 with the aim of sourcing materials with 100% traceability in the future. Since the summer of 2014, a louët megado hand weaving loom from Holland, and circular knitting machine were added to our studio. Tamaki Niime moved to the geographical center of Japan in 2016. With the vintage looms and knitting machines, they produce original fabrics by themselves, which then are used to create shawls as well as other works.
