13,000 years ago, earthenware and clay figurines began to be made in ancient Japan using natural materials such as soil.
It is the beginning of the Jomon period, in which patterns are applied with ropes, manufacturing with high technology pursuing practicality and design, and a rich culture is nurtured.
The Jomon people lived a life centered on hunting.
The Jomon people's view of nature and rich spirituality, which expresses their awe of nature, are powerfully mysterious in the earthenware, stone tools, clay figurines, and accessories created from living in harmony with nature. It is given as a typical design.
And it is said that it was possible to foster a rich culture over 10,000 years because we did not fight for peace and territory.
In 2020, JOMON's textiles, which he created with full satisfaction by his ELNEST, who has created various graphics with the motif of the Jomon period, are pieces of earthenware that can most feel the spirituality of the Jomon people. The collage strongly expresses the memory of Jomon and the swell of the beauty of modeling.
The Hauser II outsole and midsole are colored with obsidian, which was used as a tool, and jade, which was cherished as a special ornament, so that you can immerse yourself in the world of Jomon. I am.
What can we, who live in the present, receive from the Jomon culture, what can we do in the present age, and what can we connect to the future?
I made it with the aim of creating a unique shoe that homages the message that speaks to the imagination and the Jomon world.
