My name is Taka,
I was born in Kyoto one of the most beautiful city of Japan.
I studied economics and worked first as sell manager in a big company in Japan.
I rapidly change my career path as I was searching for a job that I feel every day inspired with.
After some formation in modern art and design, I have joined an agency that manage events in Kyoto; events such as weddings concert etc…
In this agency I have developed so much, I have developed skills in art-deco design, learned handcraft Japanese fabrication techniques and learned about how to give positive advises to people on there fashion…
More importantly, I have learned that very small details, small advise can have a big impact on people self esteem and insurance.
And this is what I like the most: help people feel better in their life.
Since, I have dreamed that one day, I will realize a Jewelry / Art-Deco brand that should encourage people to feel different, better in their skin.
Four years ago, since I have left Kyoto to live in the Black Forest region in Germany with my husband who is French,
I have decided to start realizing my dream by launching my Jewelry / Art-Deco brand that I have called “Touche Légère”.
Touche Légère means in French “Light Touch”. Through this brand I want to offer unique and original items with an intimate balance between Asian and European style. All items are
designed and fabricated 100% by us in our atelier.
I wish that one day Touche Légère become a well recognize international brand of handmade Jewelry and Art-Deco items
for people that search originality and want to underline their style.
