Hi there and welcome! I am Soumya James, the owner and designer of Kokuin. I am an independent art historian who works on premodern Southeast Asian art.

As a single-owner of this small business, I am involved in every aspect of design and manufacture of the products that you see on the website, including sewing, printing and dyeing. I make small batches of home linen, putting together patterns and colors that I personally would like to see in my own home. I hope you enjoy the products that you see here and will visit again.
