natural design - eco-friendly - craftsmanship
As many of us live in cities it is easy to get detached from nature. Urbanization is natural but when too much focus is on economic efficiency we lose touch with nature – not enough green spaces, too much synthetics, and not enough care about how things are produced. At ukA we try to close this distance a bit. We mainly use natural materials, and use as much eco-friendly & labor conscious products as we can. ukA work with a community of craftsmen, mainly Japanese but also from other countries, as we feel that handicraft skills have a beauty that commercial industrial products are missing.
