Purchase an off the rack bespoke kimono or create your own design that reflects divine, unique and wonderful you with a personal kimono consult.
The Archetypa kimono evolved into its fullness in lock down, during the first part of 2020, when I began to wish some of my kimonos were fluffier, and more hug like but still stylish so I could feel like I hadn't given up on life wearing my gym pants everyday. So I got a baby blanket and a pattern and hand sewed over two days, the first prototype. I loved it so much I brought a sewing machine, taught myself to use it and made a second. Then a friend saw me in it and they wanted one too, and the rest is history....
Each time I created a new piece I learnt a new technique or finish until I ended up with the Archetypa signature kimono. I created my joy and now I pass that joy onto you with my bespoke, handmade kimonos done in unusual and oft times unexpected fabrics and prints, guaranteed to make you happy and cosy. Timeless pieces that you will wear into the next decade, pieces that move with our busy lives without sacrificing comfort or style.
Made with love.
Archetypa offers you beautiful and functional clothing that takes you from yoga to work and then to dinner whilst feeling like you are wrapped in a hug. They are so comfortable, you may even want to sleep in it!
