Our story

Nikka Zubon is a clothing boutique created in 2015, based in Osaka, Japan. This project was born from the will of its creator, a young Frenchman Brathish Thevarasan, a free and curious spirit. Following his travels in Japan and contact with Japanese people, he was able to discover other ways of dressing and designing a product. In particular, he fell in love with the trousers called Tobi and Nikka worn by construction workers, 鳶職人 (Tobi Shokunin). From then on, everything made sense: by introducing the world to this unique style and the finesse of the work, he could combine all the passions (sharing a history and products with new sensations, ...) that drive him.

Voyage au Japon


The symbol of Nikka Zubon is the black kite called 鳶 (Tobi or Tonbi) in Japanese. The bird is an image of travel and the meeting of many worlds, but also the freedom to migrate to other horizons. This majestic bird is an image that represents the prestige as well as the silhouette of these craftsmen.  


The Tobi and Nikka trousers originate from Japanese workwear known for their quality of manufacture and their comfort when worn. Indeed, they have the particularity to have a cut which allows to give an ease during the movements. 

With a wide waistline that narrows at the ankles, and a long length that makes it easy to move from sitting to standing, the design of the trousers has been finely crafted. It is said that the shape was inspired by a mixture of Japanese hakama and western trousers. In fact, thanks to the silhouette and their many features these trousers are a symbol representing the spirit of the workers (modern warriors) going into battle.

The trousers you have today are the culmination of many years of improvement to meet the needs of users.
