AKIKO MANO is president of JAMJAM, a brand of handmade children's clothing and accessories. When she became a mother, Mano decided that there was no clothing available that she considered suitable for her child. She devoted herself to studying pattern making and soon began making children's clothes. Her unpretentiously styled clothing, made with natural materials, has garnered a great deal of attention, and her creations are often featured at promotional events and in magazines.
