HaaT began in 2000 as a brand imagined from textiles.
The concept is three similar-sounding words. The first is “haat”, the word for village markets in Sanskrit. This reflects the way HaaT is transcending borders and bringing together a wide range of technology, materials and esthetics. The second is “heart” in English, reflecting the loving care poured into the high-quality textiles developed in Japan and the techniques that have been developed over a long period of time. The third is “haath”, Hindi for “hands”, which reflects the combination of Japanese design and top quality Indian craftsmanship. ISSEY MIYAKE’s former textile director Makiko Minagawa is the creative director, working to produce long-lasting clothes and accessories with a handcrafted touch.
