Not only a store, « Bows & Arrows » is also a magazine published once a year, dedicated to Japanese contemporary craft.

Being full of interest if not admiration for people who dedicate their life to creating the most perfect object, our editorial team has travelled to 14 different prefectures, interviewing more than 30 craftsmen in order to discover their secrets: It has been a wonderful journey. As a result Bows & Arrows is the portrait of 20 brands and craftsmen without which the Japanese craft landscape would not be the same.

180 pages printed in Japan on 3 different types of paper: Bows & Arrows is also a marvelous object.  

Bows & Arrows is published by « Media-Surf » and Hoghan companies and is distributed in some of the best book-stores in Japan, USA and Europe.
