Megumi Project Onagawa
Megumi Project is about restoring beauty. At our production site in Onagawa, Japan we up-cycle vintage kimonos donated from all over the country into one-of-a-kind shawls, scarves, bags, journals and accessories.
Our artisans, all women directly impacted by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, are empowered to gain income and new skills, nurture their creativity, and regain hope.
Hope, not only for themselves, but for the future of this remarkable port town, that in 2011 lost more than 800 lives, thousands of homes and the central infrastructure of the town. Despite such devastation, the people of Onagawa have displayed resilience and a brave entrepreneurial spirit. One demonstration of this is the construction of a beautiful new outdoor shopping mall where we have the honor of selling our products.
As you purchase and use Megumi products, please pray that hope would be restored to this place, that Megumi (grace and blessing) would overflow in this town.
Megumi project is a ministry of Kizuna Friends comprised of Christian workers from Japan and the United States of America. All proceeds from this project are used to run the project and provide income for the local workers. Thank you for your support!
