In 1688, Takeya Matashiro established a bamboo shop under the name TAKEMATA.

By constantly dedicating ourselves to fulfilling customer wishes to the fullest extent possible and continually handing down traditional techniques for more than 300 years, we have pursued the design, production and installation of everything from daily-use implements and accessories to bamboo garden fences.
Today, we make full use of Kyo-meichiku (Genuine Kyoto Bamboo) as well as innovative approaches combined with techniques passed down from TAKEMATA artisans of past generations as we propose and create bamboo products designed to harmonize with contemporary lifestyles.
