The shop has over 1500 modern craft items made by local Kyoto craftspeople including ceramics (sake sets, teapots, rice bowls), incense, wooden chopsticks, bowls, kimono fabrics, gold leaf, umbrellas, candles and art works.
Kyoto Design House opened in 2009 and seeks to bring together in one spot, the immensely rich crafts of Kyoto.
