■An episode of my encounter with kogin embroidery.

Thank you for accessing.This is the web log of "kogin*bear style"making teddy bear with kogin embroidery.
My name is Kohiro and I design and make my all products of teddy bears and kogin embroidery.
Since 2013,I have been making teddy bears with kogin embroidery,
and also small articles such as bear-shaped key rings,brooches with kogin embroidery.

I'd like to tell you the reason why I started to make kogin embroidery products.
When I was an university student,I lived in Hirosaki city,Aomori prefecture.
There is famous for cherry blossom of the castle,Neputa festival,apple crops,and kogin embroidery.
Kogin embroidery is one of Japanese traditional embroidery in Tsugaru area in Aomori prefecture.
I saw an old work clothes with kogin embroidery.
I also saw that the items of kogin embroidery are sold for the souvenir in the city.
Then I found kogin embroidery is a traditional industrial art object.

After graduated, I started making teddy bears.
Because there are many teddy bear artists in the world,I wanted to make my original teddy bears.
I remembered kogin embroidery and hit on making teddy bear using kogin embroidery.
I searched the way to learn making kogin embroidery.And I learned it by myself.

The first model of teddy bear with kogin embroidery was born on February 2012.
In 2013,I decided my trade name "kogin*bear style".
It means my main product of "kogin" and "bear", furthermore my hope that I'll design new "style".

I believe that cute teddy bears make people happy.
I really hope that kogin*bear style's teddy bear will be your best friend.

This button is the first product of kogin embroidery which I bought.
When I bought it,I never thought I would make kogin embroidery.
Now it attaches on my bag.

Thank you for reading this to the end.
