We’re already in the second week of the new year! You’ve exchanged presents with everyone on your holiday list by now, but maybe you’re not completely satisfied with everything you received.

About IPPIN PROJECT
New York-based interior design firm CRAFITS DESIGN STUDIO started IPPIN PROJECT in 2014 with the purpose of giving Japanese makers of furniture and home decor an outlet to sell their products abroad. With a designer/decorator’s background, they are focused on introducing Japanese traditional techniques and hand-crafted works in high-quality designs.
Products such as tableware, interior goods, and kitchen tools are available as well as items made from Japanese materials such as Kumiko wood screen, Kawara tile, Washi wall coverings, and more.
The products they carry are not mass-produced in Japan; they are made from limited materials and by skilled artisans. IPPIN PROJECT also produces custom-made furniture using traditional Japanese material with a contemporary twist.
