The traditional Japanese house, symbolizing a long culture of wood, is epitomized by refined fittings such as “fusuma”(sliding doors)”shoji”(papered lattice screens)and “ranma”(decorative transoms.) These are exemplary works made by specialized craftsmen, separate from carpenters.
Kumiko is the refined lattice-work derived from making such fittings. It was born of finely planed wood, inter-locked in intricate patterns. This high degree of intricacy is unique to Japanese construction. The making of kumiko is very precise work and requires great perseverance.
K-INO INOMATA ART started working on Kumiko about half a century ago. Kumiko to answer clients’ demands, are highly appreciated.
