Each of the stoles is one of a kind, hand-dyed using the technique of Kaga Yuzen. Enjoy the softness, thinness and lightness of thin silk.

    Ojami Stool Set
    -Collaboration between Takaokaya and Tendo-

    Created through collaboration between Takaokaya and Tendo. The wooden section is made of Tendo's skillfully molded plywood, while we at Takaokaya make the "Ojami Cushion". The unique shape is inspired by the ancient Japanese beanbag toy called ‘otedama’, or ‘ojami’ in Kyoto dialect. Handcrafted by our skilled Kyoto artisans. If these two items are used together, they function as a chair. If used separately, they serve as a Zabuton and a table. Use as you please. The two-way stool suits any situation.
