Ibushi Kawara Mosaic Tile (S)


Smoked Kawara Tile is the material used for the roofing in Japanese architecture for many years. ARARE is the newly developed material based on the traditional ibushi (smoke) technique that has been continued for 2000 years. It is also used in the Himeji Castle, the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is fired in the kiln for four days, and its uneven surface makes every piece a unique and beautiful expression. With the various ways of use, such as the interior wall finish, the part of the products like mirror frames, or even simply as the artistic wall decorations, it helps create the whole new space.
