■About FUKUI TRAD
There are seven traditional crafts of Fukui designated by the Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry of Japan. These include Echizen Shikki Lacquerware, Echizen Washi Paper, Wakasa Menou-Zaiku Agate Work, Wakasa Nuri Lacquerware, Echizen Uchihamono Forged Blades, Echizen Yaki Pottery, and Echizen Tansu Chests. BEAMS JAPAN & NON have renewed these traditional crafts with the two themes: "interior items" to enrich the modern lifestyle and "items to enhance women's beauty" for fashion & beauty.
The range features "traditional crafts to enrich everyday life," such as chopsticks, knives, chests of drawers, and "traditional crafts for beauty & fashion," such as cheek brushes, scrunchies, and bangles.
Enjoy the two delightful ranges of products designed with the modern lifestyle in mind.
