Japanese designer Hideto Nishimoto developed A. Dupré on the belief that “anger won’t last long in a beautiful world.” People’s perception of material wealth has shifted dramatically since Japan’s Great Earthquake on March 11, 2011. By applying traditional materials and techniques formed by and with our nature over time, we are seeking out a new aspect of apparel. We are trying to reassert that there is a relationship between the natural and human world, something easily forgotten today.
All our products are made in India through classic, traditional production processes. We mainly use a manually hand-loomed Indian textile, along with organic materials wherever possible. We believe that fabrics created in harmony with the natural environment can not only make our future greener, but people can express what they value by wearing them.
Simple and modern, relaxing but elegant: we make clothing that can be worn for a long term, developing a close relationship with individuals who wear our creations.
