Tokyo Teshigoto: Exhibition and Pop-up Shop
The Tokyo Teshigoto project was launched to create new but traditional products by local designers and craftsmen. The aim is to create items with a distinctly Tokyo feel, and to help develop new markets for them both in Japan and overseas. Ten newly developed products from this project were recently unveiled during an awards ceremony at Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, and will be on display and available for purchase at the Mitsukoshi Main Building (5th floor) in Nihonbashi during this pop-up event. Items include Japanese knives made with the traditional hizukuri (blade forging) method, mobile decorations imitating bonsai, handcrafted copper pots, sowan cups finished with urushi lacquer, and more.
