“I want to cherish touching with my hands and feeling with my five senses.
We want to be aware of and come up with ideas through hands-on interaction with tools and materials.
With this in mind, we named our company “Yoshita Handicraft Design Office”.
We would like to know and learn about the richness of the land, environment, and traditions.
By learning about and designing products that are made possible by the richness of the land, environment, and traditions, we can give back to our daily lives.
The Yoshita Handicraft Design Office is a place where people can think with their hands and
The Yoshita Handicraft Design Room is a place where we can think with our hands, practice design without being distracted by fads and fashions, and learn from Sori Yanagi.
We aim to spread the universal values that we learned from Sori Yanagi both in Japan and abroad.
