TOKYO Teshigoto

The two-fold sudare screen created from reeds and bush clovers. They are natural elements born in the wild and turned into materials, yet they line up straight and fit tightly within the chequered frames. And with beautiful stitching, the craftsman’s confidence is strikingly conveyed in this piece of work. Folding screens are often used as partitions, but unlike the washi paper folding screens, the sudare has a more casual character so it can be used with ease. Nothing covers the backside, so air and light can pass through freely. And when placed before indirect lighting, the light reflects beautifully, so it can even accentuate a corner of a room. It suits both Japanese and western style rooms. The tableware creates a feeling of refreshment to the dining table. And the luncheon mats can be rolled up to be put away. The functions of the sudare – which can also be hung outdoors – are fully leveraged and its durability allows it to be used confidently.
