NORTA was established by the owner, who has been selecting products in the fashion industry for a long time, and was smitten by the beautiful traditional crafts and wonderfully delicate techniques of Ishikawa craftsmen, and wanted to introduce them not only to the Japanese but also to people around the world.
NORTA produces interior goods and miscellaneous items that match modern lifestyles while incorporating traditional craft techniques. We communicate directly with artists and craftsmen in the process of manufacturing our products.
We also deal in antiques, which the more you know about them, the more you can discover the culture and craftsmanship of the time, and the more you become addicted to the richness of their profundity.
Kanazawa City has history, culture, and a wide variety of crafts. If you go a little further, you can be impressed by Kutani ware in Nomi City, be healed by Yamanaka Onsen and Kaga Onsen, and visit the Noto Peninsula with its rich nature. In the Noto region alone, Notojima, Suzu City, and Wajima City are rich in nature, each with its own charm. And of course, there is the delicious food!
Please come and explore the charms of Ishikawa that you have yet to discover.
We look forward to your visit!
