Sachiko Matsuyama, Producer and Representative of monomo
Sachiko Matsuyama established monomo in 2014 with the aim of sharing Japan's rich craft culture with the world. She visits artisans throughout Japan who are involved in handicrafts that are connected to nature and rooted in a rich history to discover the stories behind the crafts. In addition to supporting collaborations between traditional Japanese craftspeople and creators from overseas, monomo also organizes educational programs and tours, viewing crafts as a mirror of Japanese society, values, and consciousness.
