Tradition


ECHO OF AN AGE-OLD TRADITION OF HANDCRAFTING CARRYING ZEN CUSTOMS AND BELIEFS, THE KESA IS OUR TECHNICAL AND SACRED GUIDE.

CEREMONIAL VESTMENT ORIGINALLY WORN BY BUDDHIST MONKS IN EAST ASIA, THE KESA IS NOT JUST A GARMENT, IT IS ZAZEN ITSELF. during its fabrication, THE KESA goes through A METICULOUS PROCESS WHERE SEWING, STITCHING, MEASURING, FOLDING THE FABRIC BECOME PART OF A DEEP JOURNEY… CARRYING ONESELF TO THE PATH of LIBERATION.

EXERCISING THE ATTITUDE OF THE MIND TO INFUSE A DEEPER MEANING TO EACH PIECES IS THE CORE OF OUR WORK. WE BELIEVE a just garment is THE KEY TO REVEAL INNER BEAUTY, subtly EMPOWERING THE WEARER WITH GRACE AND MYSTERY.

Innovation


TRANSGRESSING THE LAW OF PERFECTION BY USING NATURAL FIBERS and DYES IS OUR WAY TO REVERE NATURE AND EMBRACE SINGULARITY.

using EXCLUSIVELY SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS ALLOWs US TO WORK WITH INNOVATIVE AND SPECIALIZED PRODUCERS ALL AROUND EUROPE. TO ENSURE PROXIMITY, FAIR LABOUR PRACTICES AND QUALITY, WE ALSO FAVOUR CERTIFIED FABRICS.

FORGOTTEN AND MISUNDERSTOOD, CARRYING CENTURIES OF TRADITIONS since THE BIRTH OF CIVILIZATION, LINEN HAS A PREDOMINANT PLACE AT ATELIER KESA. NOT ONLY FOR ITS green and durable QUALITIES BUT PARTICULARLY FOR ITS RUSTIC CHARACTER AND TIMELESS ELEGANCE… EVOLVING WITH TIME AS THE WEARER DOES.

FOUNDED IN 2018, ATELIER KESA IS HONOURED TO BRING TOGETHER TALENTED HUMANS FROM DIVERSE FIELDS. DESIGNED BY FRENCH DESIGNER AND FOUNDER NINA LANGEL, IT IS WITH THE PRECIOUS HELP OF MAGDA ABDEL-HAFITH AT PATTERN MAKING, AND her dear PARTNER FREDERIC ARBOUR THAT EACH COLLECTIONS CAN SEE THE LIGHT.

ATELIER KESA WOULD LIKE TO THANK THEIR CUSTOMERS FOR THEIR CONTINUOUS SUPPORT AND TRUST. WE ARE COMING BACK THIS JUNE!
