Takaokaya has created masterfully handcrafted zabuton and seating cushions in Kyoto since 1919. It is highly regarded for producing some of the finest zabuton cushions in the world.

Having recently celebrated its centennial anniversary, Takaokaya’s legacy lies in its unparalleled craftsmanship, made by master crafts people using tradtional techniques passed down from generation to generation.

Takaokaya combines Kyoto’s centuries-old textile expertise and the Japanese art of kutsurogi (a state of complete relaxation) to bring balance and comfort to contemporary lifestyles and harmonize any living and work space.

Takaokaya prides itself on handcrafting the zabuton cushions one at a time. No two pieces are ever alike due the multi-step process of textile dyeing that creates subtle differences along the fabric grain.

This prized craftsmanhsip remains unchanged over a century ago and backed with a genuine philosophy of "simply bringing a smile on everyone's face,” the state achieved when resting with a zabuton cushion from Takaokaya.
