Perhaps when I was younger, the things we owned were much less mass-produced. Perhaps since things were more expensive, and could see the people who made them, and the efforts they gave, we had a greater appreciation of our cups, plates, tableware, clothing and other crafts.

There are also these special possessions we have that never fail to bring joy. The kimono I am wearing in this picture is one of them. My mother purchased it for my wedding, and since then, I have worn it on many special occasions, with each occasion adding to the happy memories I have associated with this kimono.

I hope that I can help fill your home and life with such special items which last, and grow in intangible value as they grow with you. 

With gratitude,

Satoko Yamada
