My name is Emi. I am the owner and designer of everything Kishu Baby. With each of my designs, my goal is to strike the perfect balance between fashion and function.
The daughter of a seamstress, I grew up in the countryside of Nagoya, Japan. My first thought of moving to America was while watching Titanic in the theater. It was the scene where Jack climbs the rail of the ship and shouts “I’M THE KING OF THE WORLD!”
I arrived in Los Angeles in 2000. Yes, I’m a dreamer. I’m also a risk-taker (but definitely was not planning to travel by boat!).
Twelve years later, after finishing language school, working as a sushi waitress, meeting an American boy, graduating Cal State University Northridge, getting married, and having a baby, I started sewing.
What started as a hobby, turned into a passion, turned into a business. My husband Ken and I formed Kishu Baby LLC in July of 2015.
We make adorably stylish and luxuriously soft muslin baby accessories.
Designed in California. Artisan made in India from Fairtrade & GOTS certified organic cotton muslin.
