スロークリエイティブスピリット

During our stay in Kyoto, we met artisans working at 20 square meter ateliers hidden in tiny streets - curving out humble yet the most philosophically rich crafts at their isolated, beautiful bubbles. Inspired by the trip, we created this collection filled with their personal life stories, inviting you to feel and live in their small yet beautiful universe.
