About 13,000 years ago, ancient Japan began making pottery and clay figurines using clay and other natural materials.
This is the beginning of the Jomon period, when a rich culture was nurtured through high-tech craftsmanship in pursuit of practicality and design, using ropes to create patterns.
The Jomon people lived mainly by hunting.
Earthenware, stoneware, clay figurines, and accessories created from a lifestyle of coexistence and symbiosis with nature are a powerful and mysterious expression of the Jomon people's view of nature, which expresses their fear of nature, and their rich spirituality. It has been applied as a design.
And it is said that they were able to develop a rich culture over more than 10,000 years because they loved peace and did not fight over territory.
In 2020, his ELNEST, who has created various graphics with Jomon period motifs, created the long-awaited JOMON textile. I made a collage and powerfully expressed the memory of the Jomon period and the undulating beauty of the art.
Hauser II's outsole and midsole are colored with obsidian, which was used as a tool, and jade, which was cherished as a special accessory, so that you can immerse yourself in the world of the Jomon period. I'm here.
What can we learn from the Jomon culture, what can we leave behind, and what can we pass on to the future?
We aimed to create a one-of-a-kind shoe that pays homage to the Jomon world and a message that speaks to the imagination.
