-Dento Kogei -
THE ART OF JAPANESE CRAFTING

We select and sell items that we deem well-made and well-designed, including “Dentō Kōgei” items; refined artisanal arts and crafts from Japan.

In order for an object to be officially recognized as traditional Japanese craft, it must meet all five of these requirements:

  • predominantly handmade
  • crafted at its place of origin
  • practical enough for regular use
  • crafted using traditional materials
  • crafted using traditional techniques

Each craft demands a set of specialized skills.
Japanese craft works serve a functional or utilitarian purpose, though they may be handled and exhibited similar to visual art objects.
