New Craft Shop /Shin-ko-gei-ten is a store run by New Craft House in kyoto to handle and promote new crafts.
New Crafts is a new form of manufacturing made possible by the spread of digital fabrication.
Digital machine tools, such as 3D printers, are trying to reduce the production of things to a personal activity.
The work of "making" things (especially in resin), which has long been taken away by large corporations through mass production technology, can be returned to the hands of individuals.
This store collects and sells such new age crafts.
We would like to deal not only with items made by the new craft house, but also with works that share the same context widely.
From this store, we hope to spread an alternative consumer culture to replace the commercial and mass-produced products that are all around us.
