CONCEPT

「ECO」「SIMPLE」「TOUGH」

With three axes
“Starting from the soil and returning to the soil”
We propose recycling-type manufacturing

"Shoai Zome" that uses only natural fibers and natural dyeing without using chemicals or chemical fibers.
Thinking about coexisting with the earth in the true sense, we make things according to the natural cycle.

ARTIST INTRODUCTION

Riku Matsuzaki

RIKU MATSUZAKI

My sound material-cycle manufacturing works with the belief that it will reduce the burden on the earth and change the world.
It makes you feel the beauty and strength made only from the things born from nature.
Everyone should take it for granted and live in harmony with the earth.
I am proud that my recycling-oriented manufacturing can reduce the burden on the environment and change the world.
With the concept of being beautiful and simple so that it can be used for a long time, I will continue to send it from Japan to the world with pride.
