clear About Paulownia

Paulownia is a type of wood that has been used in making traditional Japanese furniture (mainly chests) for more than 200 years. Not only being light, elastic, and limber, Paulownia is also strong to aridity, humidity, fire, and worms, giving it enough reasons to be used for centuries to protect precious kimonos and properties. All of the furniture produced in this project are hand-made by the most skillful craftsmen from Kamo Chest Manufacturer's Cooperative of Niigata prefecture.


Paulownia(桐)について

桐は200年以上も昔から、主に箪笥など日本の伝統的な家具に用いられている木材の一つです。柔軟性・弾力性に富むと同時に軽量で、湿気・乾燥・炎に強く、防虫効果も高いことから、古来より大切な着物や財産を守るために使われてきました。当プロジェクトの作品は、新潟県・加茂箪笥協同組合に加盟する優れた職人の手によるものです。
