Mieko Mintz

Mieko Mintz synthesizes rich textile traditions with modern aesthetics. Born on Kyushu, one of Japan’s most Southwestern main islands, Mieko studied fashion in Tokyo before moving to New York City, where she still lives today. Her line of one of a kind Kantha jackets has since become her signature, fusing traditional Indian handcraft with sophisticated and contemporary Japanese designs.

Each jacket is a fusion of fine vintage sari cloth that Mieko hand-selects twice a year in Western India. Kantha means “simple stitching” in Hindi and is a long honored tradition in South Asia. It is defined by the long running stitch that bonds two or more sari fabrics together. In the case of Mieko’s jackets, the Kantha stitching is done by women in a small cooperative in West Bengal who need up to 5 months to complete their work. Each jacket that Mieko designs is a true original with its reversible composition of beautiful prints.
