 I would like to introduce you to - Sailan. This marvelous and bold look in design is the nickname I came up with to describe Urban Sailor and Japanese Craft colliding into each other. It's not refined, nor mass produced and the colours display a new dynamic confidence in the makers. The objects may not necessarily be made in Japan but ancient influences from this remarkable country is marked with great sentiment onto the designs.
