POJ (Pieces of Japan) Studio is an interior lifestyle brand that bridges the gap between Japanese artisans and people with a yearning for hand-crafted, storied pieces for their home. POJ Studio collaborates closely with craftspeople throughout Japan, creating an online collection of timeless pieces of Japan, offered alongside the stories of their creators as well.

POJ Studio fosters a socially responsible attitude towards the way we live by providing modern lifestyle products that last, are repairable, and are created from sustainable materials in a way that encourages the revival of dying Japanese craft traditions. We do this by building an ecosystem that offers the craftspeople with whom we work a point of sale for their goods, whilst celebrating stories of their heritage and sustainability through storytelling that help to highlight the true dedication and skill of each artisan. This not only offers a deeper connection to POJ Studio, but also to the Japanese culture, the quality and history that goes into creating each item that they carefully curate and produce.
