Presenting to the World,Yamagata Dantsu

Tradition and Innovation of Yamagata Dantsu

In 1935 we learned some of the secrets of textiles traveling along the silk road.
Our founder had the idea of introducing the Japanese barefoot lifestyle with these textiles to the mantra of “A Warm Welcome for Every Foot”. Our carpets are the only carpets in Japan to be completely manufactured in house; spinning, dyeing, weaving, after-sales care.
Every facet of the carpet is carefully handled by our integrated production system.

Now 80 years later, in order to bring tradition and skill to the future, Yamagata Dantsu is proud to collaborate with these illustrious Japanese designers, known the world over. World renowned industrial designer Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama, architect Kengo Kuma, creative director Kashiwa Sato, Japanese artist Hiroshi Senju, and designer Mikiya Kobayashi usher in a new era of Japanese carpet making by keeping with tradition while pioneering new possibilities.

Inheriting tradition; pushing innovation; covering the future and present with Yamagata Dantsu carpets. Craftsperson's skill and the excellent eye of the designer come together to continue Yamagata Dantsu's ideal of “A Warm Welcome for Every Foot” and push it into the future.

The Tradition

Yamanobe, Yamagata Prefecture Situated in Tohoku, the northeast of Japan,
this town was once a prosperous fabric dyeing town.
In 1935, the founder of the company thought of the idea to introduce carpet making to the area, and thus Yamagata Dantsu was founded. And in the 80 years since, Yamagata Dantsu has remained independent while continuing to make brand carpets.
