[Thoughts about this project]

When I visited Kyoto and saw Nishijin-ori Hikihaku, I was drawn to its beauty and moved by Murata's commitment to sublimating traditional techniques to modern life. It reflects Mr. Murata's challenge and his strong desire to support Nishijin-ori in the future.

Together with changes in Japanese lifestylesAs there is a sense of crisis that wonderful crafts may be lost in the future due to a lack of successors to traditional techniques, this project is aimed at disseminating information about the delicacy, care, and beauty of Japanese traditional crafts. was launched.
