We are a group of people in love with the culture and craft of Japan who want to promote high quality products which both emphasize and expand on traditional methods and materials unique to Japan.
Combining experience in retail, media, design and foreign languages enables us to create a cost effective platform for products made in Japan and marketed to the world.
With the enormous potential of the internet to reach a global audience comes the opportunity to also connect regional artisans within Japan for collaboration on projects that expand the scope of traditional craft.
Refining and re-designing traditional goods for the current era has value for both the artisan and the buyer. Products infused with the craftsman’s commitment to quality and the Japanese spirit of sustainable, ecological community are still common in many areas of Japan. The goal of Takumi is to provide an antidote to disposable consumer goods and to keep traditional crafts flourishing by promoting these products overseas.
