Chest of Drawers in Paulownia
Paulownia is a type of wood that has been used in making traditional Japanese furniture,mainly chests, for more than 200 years. Not only being light, elastic and limber, Paulownia is also strong to aridity, humidity, fire, and worms, giving it enough reason to be used for centuries to protect precious Kimonos and properties. All of the furniture produced in this project is hand-made.
