On December 5, 2020, Iwakiya Co., Ltd., which handles the kimono business, pre-opened a store in Ginza, a riding club, in collaboration with horses and kimono shops.
[Background of opening a store in Riding Club Ginza]
Unfortunately, kimono is a sunshine industry. That is why Iwakiya has been aware that it is only one thing and that other companies are not doing it. The next president, Managing Director Gazuma, is a big fan of horses and has three horses, so he is particularly active in activities through horses, such as having local children come into contact with horses and helping Soma Nomaoi. I went there. During my activities, I met many people through horses. Under such circumstances, I had the opportunity to get to know Kei Morooka, the owner of the riding club Ginza, and with the kindness of Mr. Morooka, we opened this store.

A gem dyed on a horse's pattern by a technique called batik dyeing, in which wax is applied to the part that makes the best use of the color of the fabric itself.
Picture woven with Nishijin-ori Weave a picture of your beloved horse with the delicate technique of Nishijin-ori. The photo is a picture of Oju Chosan donated to Bando Ranch, which is the only two in the world. If you look closely, you can see that it is finely woven with the thread of the kimono obi. It is displayed in the store, so please take a look.
We would like to make it a store like a horse-loving social gathering place where many people can easily stop by and talk about horses, instead of a kimono store with a high threshold.
