Our passion and our mission.
To preserve, protect and promote traditional craft skills.
Hand smocked, hand embroidered girls’ dresses
Our beautiful Princess Charming® brand girls’ dresses are hand smocked, embroidered and sewn by the highly skilled women in an employment program for disadvantaged women in Bangkok, Thailand. The program there is run by an order of Catholic nuns who, for nearly 40 years, have provided dignified and safe employment for disadvantaged women in Bangkok. The approximately 120 women there are assigned tasks which match their skill levels and the most highly skilled sewers and embroiderers make our dresses. Kasumisou Gallery has been supporting this program for women for the past 18 years. We are proud of the women and of the beautiful dresses which they make for us.
Kasumisou Gallery is committed to preserving traditional craft skills and promoting the work of individual artists and craftsmen and small workshops or small family owned businesses.
We favor products with at least some handmade component, those made using endangered techniques and craft skills or high quality products made by organizations employing the disadvantaged.
We are based in Menlo Park, California and are online only. Please contact us for more information about our products, our producers or our mission to preserve, protect and promote traditional craft skills.
