Yamakawa Rattan was founded by Hichiro Yamakawa in 1952 in a storage room in the backyard of their home in Tokyo Japan. He started the business to create jobs for his two sons who were both hearing impaired. Both his sons were very apt in using their hands so weaving was suitable. His efforts and talent made Yamakawa Rattan grow to become one of the most renowned companies in Japan specialized in creating high quality design oriented rattan furniture. Faced with the costs of operating and manufacturing dilemma yamakawa from 2008 decided to shift its production to Indonesia where rattan raw material was abundant and qualified weavers available to insure a high quality substitute to ‘Made in Japan’ products.
