Reusing Tool "TATAMI PIN"



Tatami pin, one of the symbolic tools of tatami craftsmen. The real thing is very robust, the head part is solid brass and the needle part is octagonal pyramidal stainless steel. When you hold it in your hand, you can feel its heavy weight in size.

Tatami is a culture unique to Japan, so naturally the tools used are also unique to Japan. Unfortunately, the number of tatami craftsmen in Japan is decreasing, and it seems that the tools that have finished their duties are either discarded or brought to a used tool store.

At first glance, I fell in love with this tatami mat pin, which is like a simple, practically beautiful piece, and I wondered if I could reuse it for something.

By using the pin like a lock, it has a role as a bag lock function. The material used for the body is leather made from domestic vegetable tannins. Designed with the simple and sharp edges in mind, the main protagonist is the front tatami pin.
