Ethnic styles have gathered quite a following in recent years with prominent street labels designing their renditions of ethnic and tribal prints. Lately, we’ve been discovering lesser known brands that craft their own distinct range of ethnic-inspired wear. The ones that caught our eyes include Amina and Kaya that we encountered at Be Movement.
Both Amina and Kaya are designed in Yokohama, Japan. Amina has been creating a variety of crafts inspired by ethnic cultures from around the world since 1979. It stresses on using fabric that is uniquely designed by its designers who employ traditional methods and handcrafted arts such as embroidery, batik and etc. The results are creations that bear the inimitable flavours of Amina and influences from a medley of ethnic cultures.
Kaya, on the other hand, is inspired by a fusion of modern and traditional Japanese culture. A highlight from Kaya is its range of purses and bags that are adorned with multi-coloured motifs, reflecting the pride of Japanese craftsmanship.
Amina apparels and Kaya bags are available at Be Movement located at Liang Court #01-20.
