My inspiration for starting the FLY HIGH brand was a focus on the things I take with me when I travel.
I wish to share with fellow travel-loving women the things that make me feel comfortable and happy by creating original FLY HIGH items focused on ‘made in Japan’.
I grew up enveloped in the sea air and casual style of Kamakura – a coastal town south of Tokyo – and spent much of my childhood in Asia, Europe and America. It was during my time as a high school student in Switzerland that I was drawn to the fashion world. I love to travel, and my other passions are fashion and make-up.
After raising my two sons to adulthood, I wanted to enjoy things for myself and be around things that make me feel good. I wanted to create something I could share with people who love to travel and let their curiosity lead them on journeys around the world.
As a travel-loving woman, I am very particular about the things I take with me. Travel items need to be light, practical, and stylish. When considering what to make, the first thing that came to mind was a hooded sweatshirt. You see them everywhere, yet rarely are they in stylish designs for grown women. So, I set about designing one with a mission that it is made entirely in Japan.
Another product I would like to highlight is our incredibly special FLY HIGH original travel shoes. A chance encounter with this incredible artisan made it possible to offer these truly unique travel shoes through my brand.
I hope these products help you enjoy that wonderful feeling of travel.
