Beautiful bamboos grow throughout in Japan. The straight and green bamboos have always resided with Japanese life scenes.
Since the ancient era, the crafts of bamboo have been used as various tools in everyday life, refining its beauty as fine craft art.
At Ippodo Gallery Ginza, we would like to introduce Hafu Matsumoto and Toshie Oki, successful in formalizing their master, Iizuka Shōkansai’s technique. Hafu Matsumoto has also collaborated with the renowned Spanish fashion bland, LOEWE, by weaving together their leather products with his bamboo practice, which received a great reception.
