We welcome a new and very qualitative supplier, Kawashima Tategu. They master for many years the art of Kumiko. Kumiko”, in short, is a delicate technique of assembling wooden pieces without nails.
Thinly slit wooden pieces are grooved, punched and mortised, and then are assembled and joined one by one with plane, saw, chisel and other tools while fine adjustments are made. The “Kumiko” woodwork technique was developed in Japan in the Asuka Era (600-700 AD) and has since been refined and passed down through generations of craftsmen.
