Shiomi fan co. Ltd / Shiomi Tadahiro Kyoto Prefecture
Shiomi Fan is a company with more than 60 years of history making Kyoto Uchiwa (Kyoto fans).
We supported them when they were a part of the "Atarashikimono Kyoto" project.
Thanks to innovative design of the designer who collaborated with them, they created a product that changes the stereotype of uchiwa.
A new history of Kyoto Uchiwa is about to begjn while preserving the tradition of Kyoto Uchiwa.
Mr. Shiomi, who is in charge of the development, is a young and passionate person who boldly tackled the challenge of creating a product that had never been tried before, and through the process of trial and error, he succeeded in commercializing it.
All of the new fans were very popular at exhibitions, and he won the "Best Craftsmanship Award" at the 9th Tokyo Gift Show Life & Design Exhibition. We hope you will try the Kyoto Uchiwa, which will give you a sense of the wind of a new era.
