Rikumo Journal is the official blog of Rikumo and an online publication dedicated to traditional and contemporary Japanese design and culture.  Inspired by our home city of Philadelphia and our Japanese roots, we bring you the stories behind our favorite Rikumo collections.  We cover facets of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture that shape contemporary design both in Japan and on the international stage. 

  • A letter from our editor at the beginning of every month, outlining our seasonal inspiration and the stories  we're looking forward to sharing with  you in the upcoming weeks.  
  • A "Collections" page with information on our favorite Rikumo lines, including care instructions and craftsman profiles. 
  • Weekly articles on the innate culture, influence, concept, and craftsmanship that powers Japan's design identity. 
  • Bits of recipes, interviews with local artists, field trips, or studio tours we enjoyed.
