Alserkal Avenue 69
CHI-KA is a kimono shop and art space, working with artists and organisations reflecting on the new wave of Japanese aesthetic. While recognising tradition, its interest lies in exploring new boundaries and futures, often with cross-cultural resonance.
CHI-KA sells artisan-made Japanese kimonos and fusion kimono-abayas, alongside a diverse program of collaborations in fine art, design, craft, robotics, multimedia, and performance.
The space opened in 2016 and was designed by architect Takeshi Murayama and designer Manabu Ozawa.
