Chizuko ‘Chi’ Olson founded Hiiragi.Asia in 2013 after the Olson Family relocated home to Missoula, Montana from Singapore; where her husband was working. Chi is originally from Japan and grew up in the old town of Tokyo near Asakusa. Together with her Montana native husband, Chi has lived in many countries across Asia and travelled extensively around the World. Chi began repurposing Kimono belts for decorative table runners, pillows and tapestries. Her traditional fabrics are gorgeous and can become the start of a family heirloom to share from generation to generation. Chi is passionate about bringing the great Japanese craftsmanship into an everyday life style. Chi personally hand-selects the fabric and materials and re-sews the Obi’s to create unique, Made-In-Montana products.
