KOBE MATCH CO.,LTD.
Not far from the Kyoto Imperial Palace is a section of town known for its textiles and dyed fabrics. Here, the members of Kurokashi Kobo are breathing fresh life into top-quality silks while creating never-before-seen value in the kimono world. We spoke with the president of the company, Harumi Tomita, about the “kimono renaissance” she and her team are creating by merging traditional craftsmanship with modern sensibilities.
KOBE MATCH CO.,LTD. was founded in the Himeji area in 1929. The idea for a stick of incense that could be lit like a match was the impetus for a collaborative development project with Daihatsu, an incense manufacturer located on Awaji Island. After about three years of trial and error testing, the team finally created this match-head incense stick. We spoke with Masafumi Sagayama, representative director of Kobe Match.
We spoke with Takeshi Sato, managing director of Niigata Investment Casting Co., Ltd. (the company responsible for developing the Naroi material used to make the pots), and Kaori Hoshina at Sato Wax Co., Ltd., which handles everything from sales to promotional activities for L’hirondelle products.
