Our Product Uniqueness

Three Key Features That Set Us Apart:

In addition to our products’ deep connection to the Shikoku regions of Japan—crafted by Heritage Craftspeople, creators dedicated to the future of our heritage crafts, and artists preserving the nature and cultures of Shikoku—three distinct qualities differentiate us from others.

  • Modern Integration of Heritage Craftsmanship
  • Carefully Selected Independent Artisans and Craftspeople
  • Cross-Craft Collaboration

Modern Integration of Heritage Craftsmanship:

Our primary focus is preserving craftsmanship, not just traditional forms and purposes. We’re committed to repurposing heritage craftsmanship to fit into your modern lifestyle seamlessly.

Carefully Selected Independent Artisans and Craftspeople:

All the heritage artisans and craftspeople we collaborate with are independent professionals, not our employees. While each of them brings their unique skills and creativity to the table, they share a common commitment:

  • Recognizing the importance of preserving their heritage crafts.
  • Eagerness to create new items by repurposing their techniques and knowledge.
  • Enthusiasm for sharing their products with a global audience, even if they don’t speak other languages

In addition, they have proven their exceptional skills in their respective crafts.

Cross-Craft Collaboration:

While it’s common to see collaborations between designers and heritage crafts artisans, we take it a step further. We facilitate collaborations among artisans from different heritage craft fields. We engage with each craft artisan individually, and many of the artisans we work with have established connections with one another.

Curated Items

Our curated items are ready for you to purchase as they are. These products include original creations by heritage crafts artisans and craftspeople, as well as offerings from local artists who share our passion for Shikoku’s environment and diverse cultures.

For those who are considering our “customizing curated Items” or “design your items from scratch” service, the lineup of our curated items serves as a window into the artisans/craftspeople’s techniques and methods, showcasing examples of “Cross-Craft Collaboration.”
