By promoting “Interior Chabako🄬”, we aim to stimulate demand for chabako as a whole and revive the industry.In addition to sales them, we have produced instructors all over the country and aim to spread the use of these handcrafted crafts. (100 people as of March 2020)

We are also committed to training our successors in tea box manufacturing. In 2016, we established Maeda Kobo Co. in Kawane (Kawane Honmachi, Haibara-gun, Shizuoka Prefecture), a place of production of chabako, and prepared to take over the business from Maeda Hiroshi’s Maeda Hakanjo to fully promote chabako as a local industry.
In January 2020, we will move to a new plant in Kuwanoyama, Kawane Honcho, where we will focus on training future generations under the technical guidance of Mr. Maeda.

Masumi Pizerパイザー真澄

Spent a few years of adolescence in London, and had an opportunity to love Japan from the other side of the ocean. After working for a general trading company and a bank, she retires after having two children. Encounters the "upholstered chabako" in 1998 at the home of a foreigner living in Japan. Since then, with friends established the "Interior Chabako Club", which continues to this day. Constantly pursuing new technologies and methods and working to keep the tea box industry in decline.

Message

Upholstered Chabako have been known as a “Japanese-style craft” among the foreign community living in Japan and a limited number of Japanese since the 1950s.

In 1998, I came across the “Fabric Covered Chabako Box” in the foreign community and was completely fascinated by it and started making it every day.
Gradually, friends began to gather at my house, which was overflowing with chabako, and we named it “Interior Chabako” (registered trademark) and began to set up its appearance as a classroom.
The company was later incorporated in 2004.

The Interior Chabako that is now steadily gaining in popularity among the Japanese.
In addition to the Hatanodai headquarters, certified classes have been opened across the country, expanding the scope of our activities.
We also focus on ready-made and made-to-order products with a wide range of fabrics and designs from Japan and Europe, as well as our high level of technical expertise.
Chabako is a wonderfully practical box that inherits the technology and spirit of Japanese craftsmanship and is still viable today.
The longer I’ve been involved in the field, the more I’ve been able to clarify the goals of the Interior Chabako Club.
We want to pass on to the next generation the warmth and authenticity of a real chabako made with traditional techniques and materials by skilled craftsmen. This has become one of my big dreams.

In order to get there, we think it is important to form a variety of industries that use chabako and the boxes as materials and to make the whole industry thrive.
We also want to create opportunities to experience the rich world of fabric culture by freely utilizing a variety of fabrics, including traditional Japanese fabrics such as kimonos and obis, as well as beautiful fabrics from around the world and new modern materials.

In addition, we have collaborated with a wide range of fields such as interior design, crafts, and handicrafts to create a practical and We will produce interior chabako that will fit into your life as storage. The ability to “sit” is also a big draw.
For this purpose, we have the strength of the reinforced chabako checked by an inspection agency in accordance with JIS standards.
The Interior Chabako Club always listens to the needs of our customers, and we will continue to be inventive and improve every day.
