Ecotwaza

Reina OtsukaA Bridge between Japanese eco-friendly technology and the World. We are a bridge stretching from the Japanese archipelago towards the rest of the world, on which traverse a caravan of unique environmental friendly goods. Our mission is to create a sustainable network of local businesses throughout the world and lower the ecological footprint of the global society.
Reine Otsuka – Founder and President of “Ecotwaza Co., ltd.”

What does “Ecotwaza” mean?

“Eco” is the abbreviation for “ecology” and “waza” is Japanese for “technology” or “craftsmanship.” The “t”, which can also be viewed as “+” literally means “and” in Japanese. Hence, as its namesake suggests, founded in 2006, Ecotwaza aims to lower the ecological footprint of the global society by communicating ecological mind and technology/crafts to the world. Traditional Japanese philosophy and culture is based on the awareness that human is merely a part of Mother Nature, forming a unique set of sustainable customs and lifestyle. On the contrary, the country has had its painful yet memorable lesson of environment pollution as a result of rapid economic growth in the 1960s. Through its tradition and having learnt from its mistakes, Japan possesses, in its small business sectors, the seeds of state-of-the-art environmental technology. However, since they are relatively small and not equipped with English proficiency, they remain invisible to and untapped by the world. Ecotwaza is, to the eyes of the globe, an electron microscope that magnifies and put into focus the massive hidden potential of the Japanese business seeds.

FUNFAM Table Manners Set - bamboo plate setWhen FunFam designer Tsuneyuki Fujioka wanted a unique gift for his daughter’s second birthday, he created this attractive tableware set designed especially for toddlers just starting out on table manners. Made of sustainable and naturally anti-bacterial bamboo, each hand-crafted plate set has special food group icons—like fish, vegetables and rice—so kids can help mom (or dad) in the kitchen and also learn about balanced and healthy eating.

ECOMACO

ecomaco Japanesa eco fashion designECOMACO aims for a sustainable and recyclable society in the twenty-first century are reflected in their careful selection of raw materials and their manufacturing process. ECOMACO products are created on the basis of eco-friendliness, enabling the absorption of CO2 (for the prevention of global warming) and biodegradation in soil (for the reduction of waste disposal). In addition to natural fibers like silk, they have developed new body & skin-friendly materials made from corn starch, soybean, and kenaf, to create new natural fibers for the twenty-first century. You can also enjoy wide range of colors made from natural dyes. Until ten years ago, polylactic acid fiber (PLA) was used as an agricultural material. The thread was reborn as a clothing fiber though when it was brought to Kiryu City in Gunma Prefecture, a city famous as an important weaving center in the east of the country, as is Nishijin (Kyoto) in the west. Even now, the fiber is so delicate that weaving a 60-meter length results in about 10 thread breaks, but the world-class technologies and affection of these craftspeople alone are enabling the creation of a clothing fabric for the future. Most fabric dyeing occurs in large quantities in various factories. ECOMACO® on the other hand uses traditional dyers to check items individually and ensure the desired natural colors are achieved. The real difference between normally dyed fabrics and fabrics dyed by traditional dyeing specialists of Nishijin and other textiles is brought about by hand dyeing. Unlike mechanical dyeing, hand dyeing enables intentional irregular dyeing, partial dyeing and other techniques. After dyeing, the warm summer breezes of Nagano fill the clothes with nature’s breath.
