2019
We will closed the store for renovation of store and studio since 7th January.

I open the first my shop in 1994 at south of Tenryuji.
Since then, I have continued to operate almost without close the store for about 25 years.

I will closed the store temporarily for efurbishing the store and studio.

I dont't have detailed plan of renovation at all not yet, so I would like to infomeition you in HP, Facebook, Instagram, about details of refurbishment and resumption of store.

I am sorry for the inconvenience, but please look forward to the next artwork by all means.

Conceptof the pencil case.

Since the Edo period in Japan, many people have been able to read and write.
Journaling has been a popular tool for many years. In the Edo period the Japanese also loved
making small goods using old Kimono fabrics.
From these cultural roots through to today, both children and adults still love using pencil cases.
These human-shaped pencil cases are my works of art.
I want the feeling from the fabric to evoke the joy of human emotion.
While the use of a human-shaped pencil case may seem unusual, the owner of this case may gain
an experience beyond its mere functionality.
If you don’t want to spend your life surrounded by logical tools.
Please use my artwork--it might change your life.


Infometion of Bruce 2nd.
The pencil case "people" and accessoriesse "mini" selling at Bruce and those are all made of studio at the back of the shop. Also, print fabric of original-design also works with Bruce, designs, prints and steams to make printed fabrics.
As both the store and the studio are on the same floor, it is hard to say that it is "clean", but the atmosphere of manufacturing may be felt.

The Bruce 2nd is in the Arashiyama at Kyoto.
400 meters north of the Togetu bridge.

Base constraction of our shop is typical Kyoto city house call "Machiya" that we had restored to modan type.
Please drop in at the section coming to Kyoto.
