"I have used their products for custom fireplace designs.

I highly recommend Japan Yakisugi! "

"I’ve always been inspired by Japanese design and after coming across Sumi from Japan Yakisugi, I fell in love. The ancient technique produces a striking and highly chic product that I immediately knew we had to incorporate into a project.


Everyone who viewed the installation was not only mesmerized by the beauty but also the meaning behind the material."
