“Bank of Craft” is a project that promotes the use of traditional crafts in the regional ecosystem by fusing creative works, art, and digital technology to develop tourism resources, solve regional issues, and create a new primary resource of revenue in craft production areas, rather than just maintaining the value of the craft as a product.

As the first edition of this project, Kyoto Nishijin Textile, FINEPLAY, 430(Four-Thirty),and CURRENT have joined this collaboration to create the premium skateboards and kendamas, which are now on sale.
