HaaT: Heart in HaaT Textile Exhibition
HaaT will hold an exhibition on the theme Made in Japan.
Schedule: August 31, 2014 (Sun) to September 8 (Mon) 11:00-18:00 (on the 6th (Sat) until 22:00)
Location: LA COLLEZIONE Minami Aoyama 3F, 6-1-3 Minami-Aoyama, Minato-ku Tokyo
Since the launch of the brand (in 2000), HaaT has insisted on Made in Japan, and we have developed Japanese techniques along with local creators and applied them to new, fun, contemporary clothes. These textiles add a unique brand perspective to Japanese materials, and are created with various innovations to achieve comfortableness and lightness. The exhibition will consist of clothes and accessories carefully selected from an archive built up over fifteen years, and will introduce their creators along with the techniques employed to make them. Furthermore, it will feature spaces, such as an exhibit based on the theme of dewdrops and water drops, that offer new discoveries not only for people interested in fashion and materials, but also all people engaged in learning of one kind or another.

AUTUMN WINTER 2014
HaaT : CONCEPT
HaaT emerged from the AUTUMN WINTER collections of 2000, and is named out of a threefold play on words with different meanings. The first is 'HaaT' which means 'village market' in Sanskrit - symbolizing a collection that includes a diverse range of techniques, textiles and aesthetics. The second is 'Heart' - referring to the traditional and established methods behind current day fashions. The third - 'Haath' is the Sanskrit word for 'hands' and conveys the subtle nuances that arise from the collaboration between design emanating from Japan, and the craftsmanship from India.
HaaT's creative director is Makiko Minagawa, who made her mark as textile director for ISSEY MIYAKE from the company's inception. Simply stated, the HaaT brand offers clothing and accessories that intimately convey the warmth of the artisan's hand with the assurance of everlasting enjoyment.
