Asada Kawara holds ancestral know-how, and is the only manufacturer which produces handmade tiles in Kyoto.
Knowledge of Asada Kawara:
Silvery gloss is the greatest feature of Kyo-gawara, the tiles that cover the roofs of temples and shrines. Kyoto tiles are made from high-quality clay, polished with a metal spatula until they are shiny and fired in a kiln at a high temperature.
Not only conserving the traditional crafts:
Asada Kawara is enthusiastic in introducing new techniques such as silk screen on the surface of tiles, and collaborates with Théophile Besson for this innovative collection of wall tiles for indoors and outdoors.
