In northern Japan, the winters are harsh and many areas are covered with deep snow all winter long. Most of the homeware here was traditionally produced by people for their own use during the long winter months, when farm work was on hold.
Even in this harsh environment, techniques and expertise have been handed down from generation to generation, and young craftspeople are eagerly keeping these traditions alive today.
Rooted in life in northern Japan, the region’s traditionally simple, natural
tableware and tools are made from local wood, clay, and straw.
They have become an integral part of everyday life, not only for the people here, but for people all around Japan.
Found MUJI—From the Northeast introduces tableware, implements woven from vines and straw, and wooden boxes from three prefectures around the Tohoku region: Iwate, Akita, and Yamagata.
