Kashiwaya Co., Ltd.
Since our opening in 1824, Kashiwaya Co., Ltd. has used our history and experience to incorporate washi Japanese paper and other interior decoration materials to enrich everyday life. We believe that washi can do so much for Japanese living spaces, as it is timeless and can be revived again and again, even as its texture beautifully changes over time. We will use this wonderful, traditional Japanese material as a tool to solve our customers' problems. Our aim is to not let the 1,300-year history of washi culture die out. We hope that it will continue to spread in the years to come, so we will remain focused on that goal.
Original gold dust wallpaper production and installation
This is an example of a wall surface design created from the client's child's electrocardiogram and expressed in gold dust.
A Kyoto bamboo craftsman wove bamboo strips into a sphere, then covered the lampshade with handmade Japanese paper to make a custom creation.
Restoration of sliding doors of a wooden house, a tourist facility in Aichi Prefecture
We restored the fusuma sliding doors of a wooden house that had been moved to a tourist facility. Echizen artisans restored the doors using the same kind of paper as would have been used when the house was originally built: Unka paper restored with fibers of kouzo and mitsumata, and momi paper restored by applying gofun, a shell powder, to the paper and rubbing it by hand to produce a wrinkled texture.
