About Japan Handmade

Compelling universe of storytelling

JAPAN HANDMADE is a new joint collaboration of craftspeople from Kyoto that applies traditional crafts to create novel designs for the international market. JAPAN HANDMADE offers a playful approach and is driven by a bold ambition to explore new design typologies and introduce the world to the tactile pleasure, poetry and soul of Japanese design.

JAPAN HANDMADE has teamed up with Danish Design Studio OeO to bring new revitalised life to their unique heritage products that draw on the time-honoured traditions of KYoto craftsmanship within ceramics, metal-knitting, teaware and wood and bomboo crafting. JAPAN HANDMADE offers a compelling universe of storytelling deeply rooted in 1,000 years of artisanal tradition that reaches out to a new and quality conscious global audience with inspired designs of contemporary living.
