- About Us
KTC was founded in 1950 in Kyoto, the city that many consider Japan’s spiritual heart. Here, Japan’s traditional culture, architecture and lifestyle are still carefully nurtured. For almost 1,000 years beginning in 794, Kyoto was Japan’s capital — the place where Japan’s unique aesthetic values and traditions evolved. This is the world of the “shokunin,” Japan’s master craftsmen who have refined the country’s traditional arts and skills to such a high level. Kyoto’s lacquer ware reflects this elegance. Crafted using a very fine wood base, and adorned with polished gold lacquer and mother-of-pearl decorations, these utensils were designed more as works of fine art to be appreciated than as tools to be used daily.
KTC values and respects these traditional cultural values, and as an homage to Kyoto’s traditional craftsmanship we also offer a collection of tools for aesthetic enjoyment.
