In Japanese, "Kodawari" (こだわり) refers to a concept that can be translated as "a strong commitment to detail" or "an uncompromising dedication to quality."
It conveys the idea of having a meticulous focus on every aspect of a task or product, striving for excellence, and paying attention to the smallest details.
Kodawari is often associated with craftspeople, artisans, or professionals who take great pride in their work and aim for perfection.
Each of our products has a story and embodies our Kodawari.
We want to introduce you to the behind-the-scenes details.
