Made in Kyoto + MUJUN

 

A joint project with Kyoto Prefectural Office

 
 
MUJUN is a team of young Japanese designers lead by the founder/chief designer Shinya Kobayashi. We are passionate about bringing Japanese craftsmanship to a contemporary audience around the world. With respect to craftsmanship, we work closely with local artisans throughout Japan and interpret their profound wisdom and skills into our current life style. We believe that paying attention to traditional items, materials and production processes is not just a feeling of nostalgia but it offers important suggestions to better quality of life and sustainability for today and the future of our lives. Like anywhere else, many types of craftsmanship in Japan are facing difficulties to continue. One of our mission is to empower local craftsmen to continue their works to the next generations through redesigning and adapting their century-old crafts into modern life style
and promoting them to the world.
