Kiyoyuki Okuyama × Yamagatadantsu

The collaboration between Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama and YAMAGATA DANTSU has been ongoing for 10 years, and it all started with his initial passion for promoting Yamagata's crafts. On his first visit to the Dantsu factory, he experienced the craftsmen expertly weaving by hand. It was a match that was meant to be.
Through our collaboration with Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama, we strive to create carpets that push the boundaries of excellence while keeping with our original mission of “A Warm Welcome, for Every Foot”.
