CRAFT: The Secret Lives of Japan’s Master Craftsmen

A bookshelf essential for any Japan enthusiast, Voice off Stage is a poignant portrait of Japan’s remaining master craftsmen. Compiled by Shim Okishima, Stussy Japan’s long-standing brand director, Voice off Stage takes you behind the scenes at 25 workshops across Japan. From ceramicists to metal workers and weavers, Japan’s master craftsmen proudly create items for everyday living, using skills passed down through generations, in designs that haven’t changed for centuries. With many of Japan’s hand-crafts now under threat, contemporary designers such as Okishima are working to support and preserve this precious side of Japanese culture.
