Business Content

We are a small interior decoration manufacturing and wholesaling company that began manufacturing Yame Sudare, a rare traditional craft made using bamboo found in the Yame region, in 1912. In 2014, it was recognized by the Governor of Fukuoka as a specialty craft of cultural significance.
We grew with the domestic sales of sudare, rattan, and other products made from natural materials. After celebrating our 100th anniversary, we began another business and transitioned to a new model focused on exporting traditional crafts to retail spaces. The quality was praised, with many design firms installing our products.
We offer the shitsurai* culture to customers to deliver comforting spaces to every corner of the world. Global expansion is ongoing, with showcasings at expos in Europe (France and Italy), and use in stores, hotels, and restaurants.
*A method of hospitality involving the decoration of spaces using natural materials to welcome guests that originated in the Heian period.
