My name is Jade, I am from Queensland, Australia and I am the face behind Kawaii Garage!
My love for cars and motorsports started at a very young age, stemming directly from my father. As far back as I can remember I was attending car shows and events regularly and by 10 years old, I was already hooked. It soon became my dream to own a 180sx and as soon as I was old enough to drive, I bought one! I started delving deeper into the world of motorsports, learning to drift, and driving my first few drag races! I then left Australia to live in Japan in 2019, i fell more and more in love with the Japanese culture and motorsports in Japan and it soon became a second home to me.
I started making car accessories many years ago when I noticed a huge gap in the industry for custom accessories and I was never able to find anything on the market I truly loved! So, I started making everything myself, on my own, in my garage! From making my own shift boots, to gear sticks, mirror charms, and valve caps, to teaching myself to 3d print and make everything I could possibly ever want! Then, it hit me…maybe other people may like some of the things I make too!! My absolute love for motorsports and passion for creativity, combined with my adoration for the Japanese culture, Kawaii Garage was born. What started out as passion project I started on a wim one random morning in February of 2021, intended just for fun.. suddenly became my full time job in just 3 short months of opening.. insane!!
I have every single one of you who have supported me to thank. I have been able to create things that bring me joy as well as providing you all with unique, original designs and exclusive collections to continue to fuel your very own love for motorsports and the culture within it!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live out a dream, and I hope with my products you can continue to explore your very own love for the automotive industry and find joy in everything I create.
Thank you for being part of the Kawaii Garage journey, I owe it to you!
With Love, Jade
