Shiyon Intro

They Make Wishes Real by Their Own Hands

Surprisingly, roughly 16 steps are needed to make just 1 piece of textile.
Moreover, just 4 staffs is working in SHIYON.
We wonder how they run their studios but the actual is that one staff takes care of the entire process respectively.
That is SHIYON's style; "Make what I want by my own"
Therefore, their happiest moment is when their ideal style becomes real.
This is why each their dedicated work looks like having its own individuality.
