Kumiko is a Japanese woodwork technique that goes back to the 8th century. Having developed over a long period of time, kumiko refers to a sophisticated technique of grooving slit wooden pieces and arranging them in geometric patterns without nails as a form of wooden lattice decoration.
Each piece is assembled by hand with an accuracy of 0.1mm. Despite its delicate design, you’ll be surprised with the durability and longevity of kumiko wood panels. Made only by the best, award-winning artisans in Japan.
The simple open squares of the lattice are believed to protect against evil.
Many small squares also represent the wish for the health and prosperity of future generations.
Symbolising authority and tradition, lattice designs are widely used in historical structures throughout the world.
The attractive design is to be seen in modern Japanese style houses and Japanese restaurants.
