Who says the everyday essentials have to be boring? Add some Japanese flair with these great accessories from KYO-TO-TO.
BRIDGING EAST AND WEST
These accessories make it easy to infuse traditional Japanese craftwork and folklore into modern life!
The name KYO-TO-TO represents a fusing together of Kyoto and Tokyo—Japan’s former capital city in the west and its current capital city in the east. But the name doesn’t just represent the two cities; it’s also about bringing traditional Japanese characters and artwork into modern life. And with these charming accessories, the company is bringing Japanese culture and tradition to the rest of the world. This marriage of old and new is demonstrated through the use of traditional Japanese dyeing techniques such as kachin zome, a technique steeped in 400 years of history that’s used in colouring many of KYO-TO-TO’s products. Need a little luck? Check out KYO-TO-TO’s Lucky Charm series, featuring bright reds and whites with traditional symbols of prosperity.
