Lifestyle, folk art, and occasional PUNK pop-ups
In Suzaka, a town in the northeastern part of Nagano Prefecture that prospered as a world-famous silk reeling town from the Meiji to Showa periods, there is an unusual lumber shop called Takeuchi Mokuzai Co., Ltd., which has been operating a lumber business and construction company for nearly 100 years. .
What has changed is that Takeuchi Mokuzai Co., Ltd. now has an interior design department called Take Product .
This is a common story so far, but the theme of this <Take Product> is a little strange...
“From daily life to folk art and sometimes PUNK”
oh! I don't know what the words mean, but it's a great theme.
However, if you actually see the product, I think you will understand.
Takeuchi Mokuzai Co., Ltd. will be holding a pop-up called Take Products for the first time from October 28th (Friday) to November 6th (Sunday) .
The store sells products typical of a lumber shop, such as wooden cutting boards and accessories, as well as one-of-a-kind clothing made from vintage military and workwear remade with hand prints and patchwork.
