RYUBIN TRAY

2020

大切なものを守り、美しく飾るアクセサリートレイ。黄金色のイグサ「龍鬢表(りゅうびんおもて)」が、光を反射し明るく見せ、飾る物を引き立てる。この黄金色は、年月が経って変色する事がない。数か月も手間暇かけ天日干しをすることで、この色を作り出す。龍鬢表は畳表(ござ)の一種で、床の間を明るく見せ、飾る物を引き立てる役目を持っている。その意味と役割を受け継いだ、アクセサリートレイ。創業143年の龍鬢表職人「山根商店」が製作。龍鬢表職人は国内4軒しか残っておらず、稀少な日本の伝統技術だと言える。

An accessory tray to protect and beautifully display your precious items. The golden colour of the igusa “Ryubin Omote” reflects the light and makes it appear brighter, enhancing the objects on display. This golden colour will not change over the years. This colour is produced by drying in the sun for several months. Ryubin Omote is a kind of tatami mat, which has a role to brighten up the tokonoma (alcove) and to enhance the decorations. This is an accessory tray which inherits this meaning and role. This tray is made by Yamane Shoten, a craftsman of Ryubin Omote, which has been in business for 143 years. There are only four Ryubin Omote craftsmen in Japan, so we can say that this is a rare Japanese traditional technique.
