Background of development

We want a world where it is commonplace to find products made from Japanese wood sold in stores around us. Just as eating Japanese rice and fish supports the agriculture and fishery industries, we would like to gradually create such a trend in the forestry industry. With this in mind, we make a variety of products regardless of genre, from easy-to-handle wooden goods to wooden crafts made with great skill and care.

In our previous project, "Wooden Red Seal Book -Kacho Fugetsu-," we received a lot of support despite it being our first attempt, and we achieved our goal of 700%, far exceeding our expectations.

Red seal booklets we have produced in the past

Wooden red seal impression books, which pack technology and a world view into the palm of your hand, are the most difficult products to produce. At the same time, however, it is also an interesting and rewarding work for the creator. I would like to make the most beautiful red seal book in Japan without giving too much away... This work was born out of such creativity.

*Detailed and delicate beauty

An eye-catching and beautiful design that is sure to attract the attention of those around you. This red seal book looks like a folding screen of fine art, which is precisely cut by high-performance laser processing and carefully finished by hand by craftsmen.

*Careful attention to materials

Chigashira cedar grown in the rich satoyama of Chigashira Town, Tottori Prefecture, is used. This durable and crack-resistant material can be used with care for many years to come. Special editions are also available, using Inshu Washi paper, which is certified as a traditional craft, and hand-dyed one by one by craftsmen.

Perfect as a reward for yourself or a gift for someone special!

The design expresses the myth of the birth of the nation by combining a traditional Kumiko pattern with eight auspicious patterns. It is an auspicious red seal book suitable for the beginning of a new year. The book can be personalized with characters, so you can engrave your name or motto on it.
