The sleek and warm design of these handbags, a line for both women and men, is a product of industrial designer, Takumi Shimamura. They are made of cedar, canvas and leather and have a water repellent finish.
The small furniture pieces include a floor cushion and low tables and chairs. Due to the different natural grains of cedar, each piece is unique, and prices ranging from $250 to $300.
What's makes them eco-friendly? A percentage of the sales goes back to rebuilding forests.
