Change of company name

With the incorporation of our company in September 2018, our company name was changed from “OKAYAMA-KOUGEI Co. Ltd.” to “OKAYAMA-KOUGEI Inc.”.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the patronage of our customers over the past 50 years since the establishment of the company. All of us are determined to continue to our efforts and would like to ask for your continued support and encouragement in the future.

Logo mark

The circle of outside in the logo mark is inspired from a core wood of a bolt of cloth used in wakuba, which is a machine used during coloring the cloth for kimonos. The four small rounds in the circle are images when a bolt of cloth opens a little, and they stand for the cooperation between the craftspeople. One craftsperson performs his or her own task and delivers it to next craftsperson, who after finishing the task passes it on to another craftsperson. Many craftspeople work together to create a hand-painted Kyo-yuzen Kimono. The four lines of the center are an image of tools which are used during work. For example, a painting brush, a temple, a tool which is used when drawing lines or coloring with gold.
None of them is a single entity. They represent the world of hand-painted Kyo-yuzen which is created when the power of many people comes together, just like in this circle. The logo also represents the nature of OKAYAMA-KOUGEI as a company.
