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 “Shippo”, or the seven treasures, as in Buddhist Scriptures, refers to gold, silver, lapis lazuli, crystal, agate, red coral, and carnelian. The treasures are represented by never ending circles and links, both of which have the same pronunciation in Japanese. This is considered to be an auspicious design, popular in Japan and elsewhere. You can easily assemble multiple panels to a larger size.
