In 1989 she realized her dream and opened up an Export-Import business based in the USA, making good use of her family's network in Japan. As the influence of the internet grew, she knew she had to 'get on board', so in 1998 the web site was created and she brought her brother on board to run the Japan office. That was the year that "Yoko Trading" became www.yokodana.com ( now also known as, YokoDana Kimono) . Having staff in Japan and the USA --family at that -- most often eliminates the usual 'middle-men', so thus she can offer many unique & high quality items at most reasonable prices.
In addition to the web site devoted to the sale of bulk kimono by the pound and special Japanese vintage kimono fabric, over the years Yoko has shown at a variety of trade shows and conventions but more recently we have venues at cultural fairs such as the Cherry Blossom Festivals in Washington DC, Philadelphia & Brooklyn, New York as well as Anime conventions such as AnimeNext in New Jersey. We do select quilt shows, such as New York City, Empire Quilters Guild ; Details of our venues are posted on our venues page and our Facebook Page.
To see what our customers have to say about us, we invite you to visit our unsolicited testimonial pages.
