Sashimono is a general term for joining pieces of wood without using nails. This traditional technique called tsugite creates wood furniture entirely joined together by hand-made fittings, eschewing the metal fittings found in modern furniture. Dozens of types of wood fittings are carefully hand-crafted to create perfect corners, tight lids and drawers that are easy to open and close. Kyo-sashimono first developed through the use of wooden utensils to replace the stone and metal ones brought from China and Korea during the Heian period (8th century). A variety of styles flourished over its long history, from the elegant furniture made for the Imperial Court to the "simple but stylish" ones for the tea ceremony and Edo townsman culture. Kyo-sashimono retains its original methods and beautiful craftmanship while creating both traditional furniture and modern interior design objects such as champagne coolers or lighting design.
