Authentic products that grow old with you
Traditional items with the highest authenticity grow old with you: its best condition is not when it's freshly made, but after spending long years with you.
Slowly getting used to the owner and the environment, the quality of traditional craft items get higher and higher.
This is the biggest differentiation from nowadays mass-produced goods: their best conditions are when they are brand-new, and they end up being broken after a few years.
Japanese binded books enhance their quality, as they go through many readers' hands.
