How the products are created

Having worked as a graphic, web designer and developer in Tokyo, Geneva and London, I launched my own business in 2017.
It is named Hike10’27 and I create digital fabric printings with my own illustrations.
The garments are printed in Japan and the rest is handmade in the UK.

I paint the designs on paper, which I then scan and modify with Photoshop.
The digital data is sent to a printing factory located in Nigata in the beautiful northern countryside of Japan.
The printed fabric is shipped to the UK, and I sew the baby clothes and jumpers by myself in my ‘small atelier’ corner of the kitchen at home.

Thanks a lot for visiting. I hope to see you again.
