Presented by designers to designers.

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.



TAKENOKAWA

Takenokawa means bamboo skin. The usually sturdy sheath got treated by Japanese "Preserved Technique" specialists and now features an unique and beautiful softness.

SUGIGOROMO

Sugi is the Japanese name for cedar. Thinly shaved curls of the cedar are softened, turning them into a versatile, friendly, longlasting design product with a wonderful flow.

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.



KOZO

Kozo, the fibers of the  桑の木, the Mulberry tree, turn into a lacy kind of paper  fabric, which invites to creative experiments.

NEW

KAMI TAPE

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