About Us

For those interested in Japanese art, culture and design, Artlab connects you directly to the makers of Japanese art and handicraft.

Our mission is two-fold:

  • to help expose undiscovered Japanese crafts-people and artists.  We want to support these local artists and provide them access to a bigger market.  We are particularly inspired to help people from the Tohoku region of Japan; the area sadly ravaged by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
  • for those people interested in Japan and its culture, we want to provide an insight into uniquely Japanese culture, art and design.

We hope to act as a mediator, promoting friendly and smooth communication between Japanese sellers and international buyers.  We also assist in translating production information.

Enjoy browsing the site and if you’ve any questions, feel free to contact us.  Please also visit our sister blog: http://loveartlab.me
