Today I visited Kojima to help with the photo exhibition to support Syria. This project is a collaboration of Okayama UNICEF, Oriental Museum and NPO Ibara wa Khayt. We visited jean maker ‘Betty Smith’ who will help us make some awesome denim bags with original art by Syrian designers.
Betty Smith was the first jeans company in Japan to manufacture jeans for women. Over the decades this company has developed it’s brand and craft so that’s is known not only in Japan but internationally as well.
What we love is they introduced custom made jeans, designed by you for you. Everything from the fabric to the thread to the rivets.
