Long traditions for daily use

J Life Gifts is the brand created by J Wood, Inc.
The brand makes and distributes kumiko objects designed for a less formal use compared to the traditional kumiko decorations.
J Wood stands by its uncompromised decision to only make kumiko objects by hand and using human-assisted machines, not giving in to the attractiveness of mass production despite its significantly lower costs.

J Life Gifts goods are characterized by relatively simple patterns, obtained through extremely precise skills: as it often happens with Japanese traditional crafts, the superior beauty can be noticed and fully appreciated only at a closer look.

J Wood opened a J Life GIfts showroom in Kyoto. They display all their regular products, along with items and decorations made especially for the showroom. The space also features an "experience corner", where visitors may purchase and create their kumiko object themselves, instructed by a J Wood family member in person.

Hand-making at any cost
