Been looking at hearts for the upcoming holiday and found these in one of Japan’s lifestyle blog. The brand, Shiratani Kobo, makes their products using recycled scrap wood from dismantled houses and construction sites. They create household goods, stationery, accessories and furniture. Each piece is carefully handmade with carpenter’s designs and techniques that have been passed down for hundreds of years. The name of the workshop comes from the place name of Shirotani village where their workshop is located.
