The light emanating seven colors reminiscent of the ocean, originates from the glimmering seashells. Traditional Japanese mother-of-pearl work is put to practical use, by thinly shaving seashells, and the attached Washi (Japanese paper) is finely cut into a form of thread, then woven in traditional TANGO techniques.
Tango faces the Sea of Japan, and has rich nature representative of Japan’s current scenery. Essential to the textile industry, the spirit of the locals and the nature of Tango are preserved generation after generation. We at Tamiya Raden use many materials such as silk threads, seashells, lacquer, wood, and leather to create textiles, and are always striving for state-of-the-art innovation in conformity with the natural history, skill, and vision of Tango.
