Straw barrels have been a traditional Japanese local industry since the 18th century. Straw barrels are sake barrels. These days straw barrels are used in a Japanese cultural ceremony called kagami-biraki. While succeeding to such a proud sake barrel tradition, komolabo was created to explore new possibilities. The sake barrel is printed with a highly original graphic and contains a tenugui, which is a traditional Japanese hand towel. There are 13 designs in a theme of celebration, which were created by 13 Japanese designers active in the fields of design, fashion and art.
