To change with time.

The “kumiko” is said to have established long ago in the Kamakura era.
With no help from nails or metal parts, it draws out delicate patterns using only wood.

The ever so analogue, traditional method in Japan
is still used and beloved today after 800 years,
and it is not only because the tradition lived.
It is because the tradition changed with flexibility,
along with the time and people.

A “tradition” is not just about living it’s original shape,
but is about being polished through the eras, people, and daily lives.
The days pile up, and one day becomes a tradition.

Our “kumiko” is cultivated with people and their lives.
It is for the “people”.

We, Yoshihara Woodworking own solid techniques by our craftsmen, and an abiding philosophy.
That is why we can change with time.

To strengthen tradition with “change”.

To use the tradition, with a freedom of mind.
A craftsman with a flexible view, is what we will continue to be.
