Along with our love of Japanese textiles, Ichoya began introducing country craft items (mingei) from Japan. Many of these items were everyday/ordinary items in the past and have gained beauty as they were used and have aged. All of the textiles and other items we sell are unique and acquired in Japan. Our buyer travels regularly to Japan, to hand select and purchase all of our textiles and other merchandise.
Ichoya was founded in 1998 by Mami Yamamoto-Finke and Tom Finke because of our love for the beauty of the Japanese aesthetic and charm of their craftsmanship. We hope that you too will find the same heart warming charm that we found in these items.
