Taguchi Tomoki

In the Taguchi Tomoki collection, there is a sense of timelessness, a connection to a past where art was not just seen but felt. This collection, a tribute to the Japanese woodblock printing tradition, speaks in a language of simplicity and depth.

The Essence of Japanese Woodblock Art Each piece in this collection, from the Woodblock Crane phone case to the Black x White Floral Woodblock Print cushion, is a journey into the heart of Japanese art. These are not mere decorative items; they are echoes of a time when art was a process, a meditation, a way of capturing the essence of nature and life.

A Dance of Nature and Imagination In these works, nature and imagination dance together. The Crane, the Deer, the Tigers – each subject is more than an animal; it's a symbol, a story, a piece of a culture that has revered the natural world for centuries. The stark lines and bold contrasts of these woodblock prints capture not just the form, but the spirit of these creatures.

The ancient art of woodblock printing, with its disciplined technique and its deep connection to nature, is brought into the contemporary world. These phone cases and cushions are bridges between the past and the present, between art and life.

In this collection, these timeless elements are captured, offering a piece of history, a piece of art, to carry with you in your daily life.
