Kimona Pinoy Artisanal Products

Our Story

I am Emily Puno-Lee, owner of KimonaPinoy, married to a loving and very supportive husband. I started my small business venture in the midst of a pandemic with the vision of helping Filipino artisans by supporting their crafts. I saw how they put their hearts in perfecting their work, it also takes years of skills passed thru generations. Filipino artisans and designers should also be recognized and given a chance in the global market.

As a Filipina who grew up in the Philippines, I also miss my first home and family back in the Philippines. I want to wear a piece or have something that reminds me of home. With the kimona brand, I will be able to provide an easy access of our traditional products here in the United States. Preserving the integrity of Filipino culture and at the same time fusing designs with modern twist makes it a trendy piece that will be loved by the young and young at hearts.
