A country with exquisite craft traditions, Japan is constantly striving to safeguard this important cultural heritage, including by naming its best master craftsmen “Living National Treasures”, a title that recognises their excellence and helps protect their skills for the future. Japan’s ongoing quest to defend its craft heritage fits perfectly with Homo Faber’s goals of celebrating, showcasing and preserving craft excellence.
