After going through two rounds of crowdfunding, we were able to receive 13.5 million yen in support for the ``Single Leather Compact Wallet ICHI,'' which recently won the prestigious award ``Hospitality Selection 2020.''
The Omotenashi Selection is an award established in 2015 with the aim of discovering products and services that are full of Japan's outstanding hospitality and disseminating them to the world. It is operated by more than 20 private companies, and for certification, an in-person examination by a foreign expert residing in Japan and a quality check by a Japanese expert are conducted. We certify products and services that have been recognized as ``overflowing with uniquely Japanese charm that we would like to share with the world'' as Omotenashi Selection Award-winning products and services.
We are greatly encouraged by receiving such a prestigious award, and will continue to create works that can "shape modern everyday life", which is the moku concept.
