“Kumiko” is a Japanese woodwork technique that crossed and laid thin pieces of wood bars. Skilled craftsmen assemble the pieces to an accuracy of 0.1mm. It is a traditional craft that requires a high level of skill, as the craftsman needs to understand the nature and characteristics of the wood.
The wood used for this product is Akita cedar.
Akita cedar is a high-quality wood since ancient times. It is said that the characteristics of Akita Cedar are fine annual tree rings and beautiful wood grain.
The design is Asanoha, hemp leaves, based on a regular hexagon.
Hemp has been used as divine at sacred occasions since ancient times. There was also a custom of clothing a newborn baby in a dress with a hemp leaf pattern to wish for the healthy growth of children.
A triangle also means protection from evil and harm. The pattern of hemp leaves is a collection of triangles which means more strongly.
