BI WA KOTO
BI WA KOTO – “Beauty, Harmony, and Things” flourishing in the nature of Lake Biwa.
The traditional arts and crafts of Shiga Prefecture developed around the natural abundance of Lake Biwa. Creative works born with a rustic, yet delicate beauty, have a long history here, continuing into the present, thanks to the rich water source and surrounding vibrant ecosystem, as well as its prominent position on the historic east-west trade route. Glimpses of a story of beautiful “wa” harmony appear through the products born from the beautiful lake and bounties of nature.
BI WA KOTO is made from traditional techniques, materials, and a rich history, yet suited to contemporary lifestyles through our design and development expertise incorporating deep understanding current market trends.
