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 Shokko design, based on an octagon, comes from brocade woven in the Shu Dynasty of China.
In China, where eight is the most auspicious number, the octagonal lattice pattern was used in the Forbidden City, home to the emperors.
As the design conveys the meaning of successful marriage and longevity, it is used at wedding ceremonies and in hotels.
