About Maekake

The maekake is a traditional apron that has been used for centuries as part of the uniform of Japanese workers. Maekeke were used by merchants, craftsmen, and factory workers. Printed on the maekake (pronounced: ma-eh-ka-keh) was either the name of the factory or the shop, as advertisement. 

KABAN+ pieces are refashioned from vintage, deadstock, surplus, or discarded materials. Imagined, deconstructed, reconstructed in Malibu, California.
