Kie Zakka was established by a Japanese couple the Oota's, who are based in Gifu, Japan.
Gifu is a famous city in Japan manufacturing quality timber furniture thanks to the natural supply of high quality timber in the area. By achieving the purpose of timber sustainability, Mr Oota makes use of the offcut timber pieces of furniture and transforms them into unique designs and shapes. Mrs Oota carefully selects non-toxic acrylic paints and natural oil, which are safe for serving food, to hand draw an adorable girl with different characteristics on each single piece of crafted timber. Therefore, every piece is unique due to the delicate one-of-a-kind work progress.
The Oota's said that they are so happy to be able to live in the beautiful city Gifu where is surrounding by the most beautiful nature. Their aim is to make everyone feel happy and loved in daily life by holding their works in hands. We're so happy to meet the Oota's who aim to create handcrafted works which can cheer people up every day.
