Kokeshi appeared in the ELLE DECOR latest issue!
ELLE DECO Japan 138
Among the latest report article of Ambiente 2015,
German young talented designer Sebastian Herkner choose one at this year’s venue as his favorite design.
We did what little we can for artisans in the Northeast region since we hope that Japanese local societies and culture will develop.
I got to know his project called Banjooli weaved by women in Zimbabwe.
I was sympathetic to his idea that there are people who could be happy with a little something in the world.
So We were so glad when he visited our stand and liked Kokeshi.
Moreover the fact that the culture has been handed down from the Edo period to today overwhelmed me once again.
Did he feel passion for design that combines art and sociality and chose one???
