Pieces of Japan – Kumiko Trivet Kit


The Kumiko Trivet Kit introduces an insight into the intricate art of latticework called Kumiko. This Kit includes wood pieces needed to create a trivet in the Asanoha pattern. Like most Kumiko motifs, the Asanoha derive from patterns of nature. The Asanoha mimics hemp and symbolizes growth and vitality.

Kumiko is a 1400-year-old craft, whereby small pieces of wood are assembled together without the use of nails or glue to make a delicate geometric pattern. The pieces are held together solely with pressure and as a result of calculated and meticulous woodwork.
