“Nanayosha” is a Japanese tile brand launched in 2008 by SUZUKEN TILE LABORATORY in Gifu Prefecture, an area known for over 1200 years long of ceramic production, famed for Minoware and tiles. Suzuken, with over 70 years of experience in the tile production, is now challenging the process of tile production to explore the new ways for enjoying tiles. The Nanayosha Tegaki Earrings series is a fusion of traditional techniques and modern design. For each earring, the makers stick to using "Somezuke," a painting technique traditionally used for Japanese porcelain. Every single pattern is carefully painted by hand by a seasoned craftsman.
