Echo of an age-old tradition of handcrafting,
carrying zen customs and beliefs,the Kesa is our technical and sacred guide.
Ceremonial vestment originally worn by buddhist monks in East Asia,
the Kesa is not just agarment,it is the Zazen itself. During its fabrication,the Kesa goes through a meticulous process where sewing, stitching,measuring,folding the fabric become part of a deep journey…Carrying oneself to the path of liberation.
Exercising the attitude of the mind to infuse a deeper meaning to each piece is the
core of our work.We believe a just garment is the key to reveal inner beauty,
subtly empowering the wearer with grace and mystery.
Transgressing the law of perfection by using natural fibers and dyes is our way to
revere nature and embrace singularity.
Using mostly sustainable materials such as linen,wool,silk or horn allow us to
work with innovative and specialized producers all around Europe.
Forgotten and misunderstood.carrying centuries of traditions since the birth of
civilisation,linen has a predominant place at Atelier Kesa.Not only for its green
and durable qualities but particularly for its rustic character and timeless elegance…
Evolving with time as the wearer does.
