About Us

The name WAYO (pronounced WAH-YOH) comes from the Japanese word wayosecchu, which means a blending of Japanese and Western styles.
WAYO produces handcrafted goods from vintage kimono. We love Japanese textiles and wanted to find an eco-friendly way to incorporate them into Western fashion. Our goal is to give new life to these once cherished kimono. Each piece is designed and handcrafted in Dublin, Ireland from vintage Japanese kimono, hand selected for our collection. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
