à pois is a Melbourne-based women’s handmade clothing label. Each and every garment is unique, and lovingly created by maker Kotoyo.
Through pregnancy and motherhood Kotoyo became fascinated by her own physical transformation. Searching for natural fabrics and garments became her passion. She learnt how to sew, embroider, print making, and tatting. She studied and took inspiration from Japanese pattern books. She then began making ‘made to measure’ clothing for women from the comfort of her own kitchen table. à pois is now in its tenth year, and defiantly remains a business conducted from the home.
à pois aims to create simple and comfortable garments that become part of your everyday life, using natural fabrics that will last and grow with you.
