The city of Gyôda in Saitama Prefecture is proud of being the leading producer of tabi in Japan. The Gyôda “Tabi” Collection in Paris has been created to show to everyone this traditional Japanese industry.
The collection is under the spotlight at Japan Expo on the occasion of a style contest matching tabi and today’s fashion. Modern, formal, or neo-traditional, the participants will find inspiration in every trend to create their own look matching tabi.
The 10 finalists will be announced sometime in June after the first stage of the contest.
