AODRESS is inspired by travels around the world, impressions left by all of the people, things and ideas that Mitsunori Ishimatsu and Miho Kuroda encounter along the way. AODRESS was launched in 2009 after producing uniquely individual pieces of work using old clothes and cloth collected from around the world. After a travel to India in 2012, they met traditional artisan embroidery craftsmen and saw beautiful fabrics created by hand weaving. Seeing the beauty of the products they realised the reality of lost manual work. That is why AODRESS wanted to combine tradition and sensibility over their garments.
