INTO THE CITY OF NARA, ROOTS OF JAPAN – Pop Up at Sway Gallery London
WHERE: Sway Gallery’s Concept Store
DATES: 30th September – 11th October 2019
From the birthplace of Japanese history and culture “Nara”, traditional and modern goods produced by 17 local manufactures will be showcased at Sway Gallery London from 30th September to 11th October 2019!
Nara was the capital of Japan 1,300 years ago, and it still preserves its history, while continuing to thrive within the industry of the modern age. It is a city that preserves some of Japan’s most treasured cultures and crafts.
For the first time, Nara Prefecture’s statue of Buddha, a national treasure of Japan, will be exhibited at the British Museum in London. Sway Gallery London is proud to partake in the celebration of this event by introducing a selection of made in Nara products, from 17 local manufacturers, which will be available for purchase at our Concept Store for a limited time only!
Nara’s manufacturing has always been based on the idea of harmony with nature, and strives to be environmentally friendly.
From stationery items, through fashion and home accessories to natural cosmetics – visit our Concept Store and take a part of Nara’s tradition home with you!
