KYOGI

Kyogi are 100% natural, unbleached, thinly shaved wooden sheets of "akamatsu", the Japanese red pine, thin as paper.

For the designing world close to nature.

KOYORI

Koyori, a name like a bird's song, are Japanese paper threads. Their distinguished "flag" is the designing point for artistic minded creators.

RAKUSUI

Rakusui, created out of water and mulberry threads, is a rare Japanese Washi paper. Famous for it's long fibers, it allows endless design variations.



KEITA stickrope

Greengabes proudly presents the design materials of Keita Kawasaki to the international market:

we start with the STICKROPE.

TAKEHIMO

A combination of TAKE, bamboo, and HIMO, a string or a stripe, our TAKEHIMO is such an amazing tying material! Your structural designs will look different! 

HANA no ITO

HANA no ITO simply means "flower thread". It is an Ikebana wire, used for detailed and fine parts to connect. It is as thin as a thread, but can be twisted like a wire.



BUNA Wooden holders

Glass tube covers, which function as holders. Carefully created each by each by a Japanese craftsman, the BUNA holders are a unique product .

MOMIGARA

Rice husks are called Momigara in Japanese. We consider it the most natural, recycable sustainable material ever for covering floral bases and for creating natural design surfaces.

KAMI TAPE

Kami Tape, the long long paper lines, connecting the hearts, as a wonderful flowing and affordable design material


Shimenawa

Shimenawa, the Japanese New Year decoration. Out of rice straw, decorated with dry rice inflorescenses, it stands for abundance and safety.

Soon more!



TRIAL SET

We send out little trial sets for free. Enjoy to get a letter from Japan with some Kyogi, Rakusui and Koyori in it, adding also samples of the  KEITA stickropes.
