We are still working to launch our online sales of traditional Japanese craft items and anticipate the shop to be online on 31 October. Initially, our focus will be on beautiful ceramics sourced from many parts of regional Japan. Over the coming months, our product range will diversify to include a diverse assortment of textile, lacquerware and metalcraft items. The items we sell have been individually handcrafted by artisans in regional Japan, where many cultural traditions are being threatened with extinction in the near future due to ageing, depopulation, economic hardships and natural disasters. So why not consider one of our items as a Christmas gift for somebody special and directly support craft artisans in disadvantaged regional areas of Japan? Please check www.deeplyregionaljapan.com over the coming weeks for the latest updates on the status of our shop, thank you.
