We chose a Japanese traditional paper with a water-repellent coating, so that you could use it beautifully for the long time.
With our Kyoto tatami craftsmen skill, we have redesigned the shape which was difficult to put into a daily use. A new table cover was born from traditional techniques.
In the most basic of terms, washi paper simply means traditional Japanese paper, wa (和) meaning Japanese and shi (紙) meaning paper.
Washi paper is one of of Japan’s most fundamental, and often overlooked, artistic products. During 1,300 years of production it has formed the backbone of many other Japanese artforms. In fact washi paper is so ingrained in Japanese culture, there are literally towns build around washi paper making.
We believe that creating a space with particular food and tableware will enrich the time for daily meals.
Taking advantage of tatami mats, we have realized a table cover that is "beautiful," "easy to use," and "makes food delicious."
We use water-repellent coated Japanese paper material that is both easy to use and beautiful so that those who are particular about it can enjoy their meals on a regular basis.
Easy to clean. You can wash it thoroughly with a sponge with a neutral detergent.

”Under the influence of his older brother in his childhood, he continued to play rugby from the age of 4 until he graduated from high school.
