A USB stick made of a centuries-old tree.
The BOIS series sews leather with thinly sliced wood. Because artist Taniguchi has worked with trees for decades, he is able to work with wood delicately without breaking it. The unique designs can only be achieved using natural wood. These hand made products are masterpieces you’ve never seen before.
With the right environmental conditions, persimmon trees that live for hundreds of years very rarely create a black-and-white design. This only happens every few hundred-thousandth of the time, and is called Kurogaki. Throughout history, this very rare kurogaki wood has been treasured by aristocrats and those in power. For centuries, Japanese craftsmen have tackled with this beautiful wood. Many treasures remaining in Shosoin palace are made of kuragaki. Its mystical beauty has stolen the souls of many.
