FOUNDER OF PATCH MAGIC

Akiko Silva

A Japanese Feel - In 1988, Akiko Silva decided to repurpose old kimono fabrics that were too beautiful and unique pieces of art to dispose of into new lovely pieces of clothing and soft furnishing. This is how Patch Magic was born.

Today, Patch Magic is a charming and inviting boutique where the time stands still, located at Palais Renaissance #03-05, that specialises in Japanese apparel with modern touches and soft furnishing.

Being a strong advocate for the time-honoured practices of Japanese fine art and craftsmanship, Patch Magic's popular silk and cashmere products are hand-dyed using the centuries-old Katazome technique of stencil dyeing that has been passed down generations of Japanese craftsmen.
