Itaya Craft Woven Horse

Itaya Craft is a traditional craft of Kakunodate in Akita prefecture, northern Japan with over 200 years of history. Itaya Craft involves whittling thin strips of wood -locally grown young maple tree (itaya-kaede)- and weaving them together, most of which is done by hand. It is said that it was originally established as a winter side business of a farming village and it was farm tools that were commonly produced.

Itaya Uma Horse is also a very popular folk toy and its blend of deep tones created from the simplicity of the Itaya maple tree’s white bark.
