We at KOMARI sell traditional Japanese dolls and ornaments. Last year, we met a small jewelry workshop that we thought would be a great opportunity for us to promote Japanese products overseas. We fell in love at first sight with the high level of skill of the people who create jewelry under the brand "Takamo".
In this blog, we would like to introduce some of Takamo's jewelry items that we particularly recommend. All are made in Japan.
Recommended Natural Wooden Jewelry
Among Takamo's many jewelry pieces, earrings and rings based on objects found in nature are popular. Since the jewelry is made of natural wood, it goes very well with the design.

How to care for Takamo jewelry
The surface of Takamo jewelry may discolor in reaction to sebum, sweat, dirt, or cosmetic ingredients. Please be especially careful when the jewelry gets wet with water. To keep your jewelry clean, wipe it gently with a soft cloth such as a glasses cloth after wearing. We also recommend storing the jewelry in a jewelry box or a bag with a zip. If the luster is lost, please apply with egoma oil or amani oil, etc. to restore the luster.
Try incorporating wooden products into your everyday fashion!
Just as a home-cooked meal prepared with all your heart tastes good, and a handwritten letter touches your heart, Takamo's jewelry is carefully made one by one by the hands of our craftsmen, though inefficiently and in small quantities. We hope that they will become items that you will use for a long time.
We hope you will try to incorporate Takamo's wooden jewelry into your everyday fashion. We also hope that these jewelries will reach people who are not interested in fashion.
